Mrs. Lefurgy

Welcome to Kindergarten

My name is Kara Lefurgy and I have the best job in the world – teaching Kindergarten! Since I was a Kindergarten student myself, I wanted to become a teacher. I not only love to teach children, but I also love all of the many lessons that I learn from them. I have always enjoyed being a student myself. I have a Bachelors of Human Kinetics from the University of British Columbia where I also got my Bachelors of Education. I have also completed a Masters of Special Education. I am a lifelong learner who hopes to install a love for learning in your children as well.

I have three young children, two of whom attend this school. My kindergarten philosophy is "Play to Learn, Learn to Play". To me, this means not only encouraging learning through play, but also teaching children how to conduct explorative play and to play well with others.

I am a firm believer in having a strong tie between family and school. I encourage and love parent/grandparent volunteers and will send home monthly calendars outlining the learning that we are doing, as well as any events that are coming up. With frequent newsletters home and an open-door policy, I strive to keep parents well informed.

Kindergarten is such a special time and I consider it my privilege to experience it with you and your child.

With kind regards,  Mrs. Lefurgy
