Mrs. Kirby Kindergarten
Hi Everyone!! Welcome to kindergarten! Here is a bit of information about me. I was raised in Redondo Beach. I attended Beryl Heights Elementary School, Parras Middle School, and Redondo Union High School. I graduated from UCLA with a degree in English. Then, I earned my Multiple Subject CLEAR teaching credential and Masters Degree in Education at Chapman University. This is my fifteenth year teaching. I have taught kindergarten and second grade at Birney. Prior to that I taught third grade and a 1/2 combination class for Torrance Unified School District at Towers Elementary.
My husband's name is Matt and we have two AMAZING children Hunter and Emiko.
I feel so lucky to teach kindergarten! I think being 5 or 6 years old is such a momentous time in a child’s life. They are learning so much about how the world works and how to be a good person. I feel blessed that I get to play a role in that part of their lives.
I can't wait to get to know your little ones!
AM Kindergarten Daily Schedule
Library books are due Wednesday.
Please return all forms and emergency kits to school ASAP.
Label EVERYTHING. The children come to school with sweaters, jackets, backpacks, and lunchboxes and forget to bring them home. If they are labeled it will help us return them to their rightful owner.
Common Core Standards
Please visit this site to view the state standards your child will be expected to know by the end of the year.
Your child has all year to master each concept. http://www.cde.ca.gov
Homework will be a monthly reading log. The reading log will be emailed at the beginning of every month and due on the last Friday of the month. We will be having a homework free day every Wednesday. We recommend family time on this day. Occasionally we will be sending home additional homework assignments. Please let your child’s teacher know if you require a hard copy of the reading log.
Your child will keep a mail folder in their backpack. The folder should be emptied nightly and returned to school daily. Any papers that are sent home can be reviewed and completed. You do not need to return the completed work unless otherwise specified.
