Mrs. Gretchen Krisle
I am a enthusiastic, on the go, wife-mother-teacher! My husband's name is Jason Krisle and we have 4 children, 3 boys and 1 girl! This is my 22nd year teaching. I have 13 years of experience in 2nd grade, 1 year in 3rd grade, and this will be my 8th year in kindergarten.
I love kindergarten!!! I love seeing the expersions on my students faces as they discover new things and as they learn to read, write, become mathematicitians and scientist. I have high expectations for my students. I believe students will strive to reach expectations set for them. Therefore, I set mine very high! I love the quote, "Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you will land among the stars."
This year the theme for our classroom is "Oh The Places You'll Go"! I love Dr. Suess! His books are amazing and the lessons we can learn from them are life lessons. Two of my most favorite quotes are, "Why fit in when you where born to stand out?" and, "You have brains in your head and feet in your shoes, YOU can stir yourself any direction you choose."
The word "can't" is not allowed in my classroom. I believe children can do anything they try, they just have to TRY!
