Kindergarten Testimonials

“Thank you. My son told me about the heart example you used last week and we talked about that further at home. These are excellent visual tools that resonate with children and I love the emotional intelligence learning they get at Glenburnie.” JK parent
“Honestly I can't say enough good things about Glenburnie and yourself and the other teachers there. We talk a lot as mothers in the neighborhood, and I know for certain the public school does not come close to teaching the way you guys do. Kudos to you all, you're truly helping to make better citizens for our future.”
Here is a beautiful photo taken of yourself and our four children which you have taught in JK over the many years. You have had profound influence on all of them. Your kindness, patience and exceptional teaching skills helped to shape our children in a positive way. You made all of them love to learn. Thank you again!
“I wanted to send you a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the year at Glenburnie. We thought last year, our first experience with the school, couldn’t be topped but we were wrong. We continue to be increasingly impressed with all that Glenburnie has to offer. Everything from the field trips that were so well arranged to having the baby chicks hatch in class, to the beautiful and moving SK Tie Ceremony on Monday (what a nice touch!). The best part of our son’s SK year, however, was his teacher. She is an amazing teacher! Both my husband and I, on different occasions, were fortunate enough to see her in action with her class. She has an incredible way of communicating with the students and it is clear that they all love her…especially our son! He has really progressed with her guidance and encouragement. As I’m sure you know, she has an endless amount of positive energy and a bright and enthusiastic nature that reflects in everything she does. She is extremely organized and always quick to respond when we have questions or concerns about our son. She has done an outstanding job of communicating his ‘areas to focus’ to his tutor. I believe that she has gone way above and beyond the normal requirements of a teacher in so many ways. Our son really enjoyed all of his teachers this year and we will always have a special place in our hearts for his Senior Kindergarten teacher. “

“We joined Glenburnie in 2006. Our introduction was positive, with a great Senior Kindergarten experience for our oldest son. Last year, our younger son began Junior Kindergarten. Both of our sons had outstanding teachers. It is very obvious that they love what they do and it shows in their passion, creativity, and genuine warmth. They are the teachers that you dream for your children to have. Both boys really excelled with their guidance and I am very grateful to both of them. This year, our younger son is having a great year in Senior Kindergarten, thanks to his teacher who continues to motivate him to develop his abilities. She also has great communication with the parents. I’ve joked with her that she is our ‘Maria’ (from the Sound of Music) because she is the person you want taking care of your children. She is strong and compassionate, as well as funny and talented! She is fabulous! Our older son has entered into his third year at Glenburnie and is enjoying Grade 2. His teacher is a great teacher and a great communicator. I love hearing stories from his day; they allow me to feel like I haven’t completely missed 8-9 hours of his day. I love that she cares and I love that my son respects her. This is another great year! “

“We would like to express our gratitude and admiration for all your hard work and efforts this year. Our son truly enjoyed everything about his Senior Kindergarten year. He came home every day saying how much he enjoyed school, doing his work, and playing with his friends. We have noticed very good advancements in all of the concepts that he has been learning along the way. As far as we are concerned, the bar for our son’s future teachers was set high last year in JK. The dedication that you have to your students, along with your positive energy and enthusiasm could always be felt in all of our interactions with you. You have raised that bar even higher with everything you have done with him this year. Well done! Thank you and best regards”

“Thank you very much for all of your help, teaching, and caring for our son this year. The energy, enthusiasm, and positive engagement that you have demonstrated this year has been nothing less than incredible. We admire and appreciate the spirit and passion that you display everyday. It is very apparent to us that you’ve helped our son to grow and learn in his first year of school. We feel that the JK teachers are very well suited to teach together and are nothing less than the dynamic duo of teaching at Glenburnie. “

“We would like to thank you for all your efforts in helping our son get ready for his speech. He did a wonderful job! I think a student always remembers his Kindergarten teacher and our son is very lucky to have a teacher as great as you!”

“Our daughters have grown so much in the few short weeks that they have been in Junior Kindergarten. My husband and I are thrilled with the progress that we have observed. Both girls are able to print their names, they recognize most letters from the alphabet, they are counting to 20, they know their colours in French, they sing songs around the house, recite poems from memory, and the list goes on. We are most thrilled about their excitement for learning. We often have difficulty getting them off to bed because they are ‘doing their work’. “

“I am writing this to tell you what an absolutely brilliant year our son has had in your JK class. It became apparent to us within the first couple of days of our son being in JK that we had made the right choice to send him to Glenburnie. While we do have other choices, we are returning to Glenburnie mainly due to the superior efforts of his JK teacher. You have exceeded every expectation that we had for our son’s first teacher, and for that we will always be grateful. Thank you again for all of your dedication, caring, patience and obvious love for our son this year. If all of the teachers in Ontario were as dedicated, passionate, and caring as you, I think that we would be turning out the best students on the planet. “
