Dear Parents and Families,
Welcome to my preschool class! I am so excited about this school year, it is going to be a wonderful time! My name is Jamie Krzykowski or "Mrs. K" and I have been teaching for 13 years. This is my seventh year teaching at Riggs Elementary and I can't imagine teaching at any other school. I love our school, and I know your child will too! The teachers and students are incredible and it is my home away from home.
I have two children, Payon (10) and Kash (7), who also attend Riggs Elementary. I have a love for providing safe places for those in need Brandi is also a large part of our lives and the kiddos big sister. We recently adopted a goldendoodle named Ruby, who has quickly become my third child. As a family, we enjoy swimming, spending time with family and friends, going to the movies, and playing cards and board games together. You can often find me participating in outdoor activites such as hiking, biking, and camping. Arizona is such a beautiful state that I have been lucky to call home for my whole life. Although Arizona is my home state, I am a sports fan for any Chicago team. My parents were born and raised in Chicago, Illinois and lots of our family still reside there. We love to visit there any chance we get. Go Cubs!
I strive to make my classroom a calm, loving, safe, engaging, and supportive environment for every child who enters. Each child is wonderfully unique and I make it a goal to meet each of their individual needs in order to help them succeed and feel safe. Our class is my second family and I want every student and their family to feel the same. In my classroom, we support each other, treat each other with kindness, and we respect and celebrate everyone's individual personalities and interests.
I find it incredibly important to form a community feeling and work closely with each student and their family in order to ensure strong communication, support, growth, and autonomy. I know this year is going to be amazing and I am truly excited to get to know each and every one of my students and their families. It will be a year full of learning, loving, and growing together. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. You can always reach me at Krzykowski.firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-224-3437.
I can't wait to meet you at open house!
Monday, July 17, 2023 from 4:45pm to 5:15pm.
It's going to be an amazing year!
