Welcome to Kindergarten!

I am pleased to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year! I am looking forward to having your child as a student. Kindergarten is a wonderful year where we are all learning new activities and enjoying amazing experiences. In order to have a fun year, my most important goal is to create a family of learners in my classroom. I am committed to creating a classroom environment where your child is a valued, trusted, and integral part of our family of learners. In order to accomplish this, I have planned a variety of activities to emphasize and reinforce this goal. It is my hope that you will support and encourage this vision at home along with in the classroom.


About Me

Hi! My name is Emma Kieffer! I am 24 years old and this will be my second year at SNACS. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California and moved to Reno, Nevada to pursue my college career. I chose to come to Reno because there are all four seasons here and snow! I love the city of Reno and have come to call it my home.

I attended the University of Nevada Reno. I received my Bachelors of Science in Integrated Elementary Education with additional endorsements in Special Education.
