Ms. Rowley's Kindergarten Class


Meet your teacher - Ms. Rowley

This will be my fifth year teaching Kindergarten in Arlington!  I have also taught preschool, first grade, and second grade.  My college background is in Child Development and I have my Early Childhood teaching license.  Kindergarten is a year of tremendous growth both socially and academically.  Our classroom is involved in the 2nd year of a  pilot program which explicitly teachs executive functioning skills called, Tools of the Mind.  Although the research has so far been inconclusive I believe the approach is very age appropriate and teaches children how to become invested in their own learning!

A few things you should know about me:

  • I am originally from VT and love to play outside, in all types of weather!  Please come to school prepared to play outside, rain gear and snow gear encouraged!  
  • I try to recycle/reuse as much as possible, so free draw is often done on recycled paper. 
  • I have a medium haired, black and white cat named Furby.
  • I am a soccer referee for youth and adults in the fall and spring.
