Hello! I will be your child’s Kindergarten teacher and I could not be more thrilled to be a part of the Willow Springs team!
A little about Mrs. Williams: I was a student of Wake County from Kindergarten through 12th grade, in both Apex and Holly Springs! I am a Cum Laude graduate of Elon University, with a degree in Elementary Education. I am also a North Carolina Teaching Fellow. My husband and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary this year! We are proud home owners who take pride in yard work (well, he does!) and decorating our home (well, I do!) When we aren’t at home, we are usually hanging out at the beach, cooking with friends or visiting with family! We are excitedly expecting our first baby (a GIRL!!!!!) this February!
I have taught children ranging in age from Kindergarten to 5th grade. Not only have I taught in North Carolina, but also in London, England, while studying abroad for a semester!!
I taught Kindergarten for four years in Garner, then spent two years teaching first grade here at WSES...but my heart and soul is in Kindergarten, so I'm back teaching my first love!!
I absolutely adore a young students’ eagerness to learn, share and grow. I am adamant in differentiating lessons based on the specific needs of my students through both questioning and activities; I know that no two students are ever exactly the same!
I received the Diane-Kent Parker, Wake County School System, First Year Teacher Award in 2008!
Our classroom is a creative, bustling one, exposing children to core standards and 21st century skills, such as working with technology and collaborating with one another. I teach with multi subject integration, with specific focus and authentic practice in our every day lessons, activities and projects. It is important for children, even as young as 5 years old, to know what I ask them to answer or produce has an important purpose and will help them continue to learn and grow! You can be assured your child is receiving my best! I truly love what I do!
I look so forward to working with you and your child this school year!!
