Hello! My name is Mrs. Osterhouse and I will be your child's Kindergarten teacher. I am so excited to have your child in my class this year. Since I am getting to know your child, I thought you should have the chance to get to know me. I have been teaching kindergarten for 8 years in Lee County. I am originally from New Jersey, but moved down to Florida to attend Florida State University where I graduated with my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. After that I moved to Cape Coral and continued my education at Florida Gulf Coast University. I obtained my Masters in Reading Education in the winter of 2010. I love being in the classroom and I cannot imagine doing anything else with my life. I devote myself to helping your child learn the necessary skills to be successful in their first school experience.
I have been married to my husband for 2 years and we just welcomed our first baby this May. I love spending time with friends and family and hope to share my family with you as well.
I believe that all children can learn, if given the right tools. Our classroom will strive to be a place where all children will have the opportunity to show their individual strengths and build upon their unique differences. I believe that education and learning should be fun, exciting, and challenging. If young children develop a love for learning at an early age, that love will continue to grow as they do. Through the use of hands-on activities, technology, and cooperative learning I will do my best to encourage and motivate each child to achieve at their highest level and develop into life-long learners. I know that education is a partnership between home, school, and community. Through working together, we can make Kindergarten an enjoyable and challenging experience
