Kindergarten Teacher at List Elementary School, Frankenmuth
Beth Emmons is the best! This is my second child going through Kindergarten, but my first child going through Kindergarten at List Elementary. What a blessing to have Beth Emmons for my spirited son. Beth is the Kindergarten Whisperer. Beth is calm, cool, and collected . . . always! She earned the children’s (and parents’) respect quickly and they listen to her. Beth is gentle and soft spoken, but is in complete control of her classroom. The learning environment Beth creates is safe, comfortable, and organized. Beth covers a variety of topics from Math, Reading, Writing, Social Studies, Spanish and more! Learning is so much fun that the children learn without even realizing it. My son can add, subtract, and is in the beginning phases of reading. He loves to show off his Spanish speaking skills. I cannot say enough good things about Beth. Her kind words and actions are powerful and children in her class thrive. I really don’t know how she achieves the le
vel of success with these children. I’ve never seen teaching executed at this level before. I admire Beth for the teacher she is, and more importantly, for the person she is. I know that when I drop my child off with Beth in the morning he will be cared for as the individual he is and he will receive a daily dose of encouragement, support, and knowledge.
