My name is Lindsey Lane and I am excited to be a Kindergarten teacher. I graduated from Crest High School in 2013. I began working in a daycare in Gaffney, SC and that was when I realized my passion for teaching young children. Along with identifying my passion I realized how important play is for the development of young children.
Play is important becasue it is a type of freedom that opens the child's mind to be creative and enjoy new experiences on their own.Play occurs in unlimitied ways, and not everyone plays the same. It is important children get an opportunity to play becasue it helps them develop. This is why in my classroom children will play but they will also learn important life skills while learning what they need to know for first grade. Along with teaching my students these skills I will strive to form positive relationships with them and their parents.
