Hola, my name is Vilmarie Santiago, and I will be your child’s teacher for this school year. I am working towards a certification in Early Childhood Education. I possess a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration from the University of Puerto Rico, and 33 credits of a Bilingual Education Master Degree from Ana G. Mendez University System (Metro Area Campus). I’m very excited to finish the last two classes to obtain the degree in June/17. Also, I’m looking forward to continue studies in Early Childhood Education area. This is the sixth year working in Baltimore International Academy. I’ve been working as a substitute teacher, and kindergarten teacher aid. I’m from Puerto Rico, married, and I have three children. During the 2013-14 school year I had my own class as a Kindergarten teacher and it was a very good experience.
Be assured that I will do my best to make this school year an enjoyable time for your child, but also a time filled with real learning. The skills we practice daily in kindergarten are the building blocks for your child's future success in school and in life. I know if we all work together, we can make this a wonderful year for our students and help them reach each goal that is set for them.
I am looking forward to getting to know all the children. I am sure that all of us will learn a lot in the upcoming months! I will send home information to keep you informed and up-to-date on what the children are doing in the classroom, as well as what you can do with your child at home to provide additional practice in certain areas. If you ever have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me.
