The week of September 10th through 14th is Parent/Teacher Conferences. I have four days available that week to meet with parents.
My Conferences are extremely easy and short! We will go over your child’s beginning-of-the-year Developmental testing and set goals for them if necessary. Conferences are also a great time to ask any questions you may have about our curriculum, daily schedule, or pretty much anything you’ve been wondering about!
The times I have available will be posted outside my classroom. If these times conflict with your schedule but you would still like to meet, please see me and we can find a time to work you in!
Student of the Month:
Starting in September, Ms. Jennifer and I will be choosing one student each month to be our Student of the Month! This is a special reward for student’s good behavior. If chosen, you and your child will be given the opportunity to design and decorate the outside of our second classroom door.
What do you do if your child is chosen? Just schedule a time with us to come in and we will release your child from their daily activities to spend some creative quality time with you.
Children love seeing pictures of themselves, so I recommend bringing in 5-6 pictures of your child and basing door decorations off their favorite things (for example, if a child likes Trolls, you could go with a Trolls theme). This project is not meant to be complicated or stressful, so please do not hesitate with any questions you may have. If you need decorating ideas, just go to your favorite search engine and check out the images. I can’t wait to see your creations!

My name is Rachel Johnson and I am the Lead Teacher in the Kindergarten Readiness class, as well as UCD's Assistant Director.
Outside of school I have a wonderful husband, to whom I have been married for 17 years, and an ornery 4-year-old daughter named Aislynn. I really love Superheroes, reading, scrapbooking, and camping. I travel often with my little family, especially in the summer time.
I have been working with children for 16 years and have been a certified Preschool teacher for 9 of those years. I have been with UCD since 2012 and I attended Highland Community College to receive my CDA (Child Development Associate Credential) in 2015.
I am looking forward to another year of SUPER school adventures! My work schedule is Monday-Thursday, 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM, so you can always catch me if you have any questions!
