Welcome to Kindergarten!
About Miss Gann
I would like to introduce myself to you. My name is Miss Gann, and I am so excited to be the new kindergarten teacher and join the St. Jerome community! I know it will be a great year filled with lots of learning, new experiences, and fun adventures! I cannot wait to meet all of your children and get to know them as they develop and grow. Before I learn all about them, I would like to tell you a little about myself.
I am from the South Bay and am the oldest of three children. I am a recent graduate from the University of San Francisco (Go Dons!), where I earned my Masters in Teaching and Bachelors in Communication Studies. I’ve been teaching and volunteering in a Kindergarten classroom at a Catholic school in San Francisco for the past two years, and I am looking forward to being in sunny El Cerrito. I was raised and still am an active Catholic, and religion is one of my favorite subjects to teach. I will propagate the faith and journey with your children in Christ.
I look forward to meeting you in each and every child and parent! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at any time via email.
Get ready for a fantastic year full of fun, reading, growing, and most of all, learning!
