🦁🐒🐍 Our school's zoo field trip for our formative assessment All-Stars was a wild adventure! 🌿🐾 We had a blast exploring the animal kingdom, from lions to monkeys and everything in between. Learning about these incredible creatures was both educational and fun. 📚🤩 Thanks to all the teachers and chaperones who made this day possible! 🙌
Congratulations to our October employee of the month, Ms. Jenkins!!!
Name Anjerika Jenkins-Wood
Subject Taught/Role: Kindergarten- all subjects
Hobbies/Interests: I love traveling and trying new foods.
WHY you Teach: I teach because it is something I am naturally good at. My father is a preacher, my grandfather is a preacher, and all of my uncles too! So, getting a message out comes naturally to me.
I am grateful for this honor and recognition from my peers. It means a lot to me that my hard work does not go unnoticed. I thank all of you and encourage you to stay in the fight for the children. This job is in no way easy, but we work at DK8 where only the strong reside and thrive.
Future Teaching Goals/Aspirations for this year: I will have my Master's degree this year, and I plan to continue teaching at The DK8 and enriching great minds. I strive to meet or exceed expectations on my upcoming observations.
📚👩🏫 Our students are on a journey of knowledge and achievement! 🚀💡 We're thrilled to see our dedicated students actively engaging in their instruction, taking their education seriously and to new heights.
