Welcome to Mrs. Beach's Kindergarten
Mays Landing, New Jersey!
My name is Nancy Beach and this is my 22nd year teaching kindergarten in our school system. I have seen a such a transformation in kindergarten throughout the years. When I started, kindergarten was a half day program in our school district with 2 sessions. Each session lasted 2 1/2 hours. The children were taught the basic alphabet and numbers to 20. The emphasis in those days was on teaching social skills to the children. We would teach them manners and respect as well as their academics.
