Welcome to Kindergarten!  
    About The Teachers:
    Hello!  My name is Tammie Cecere and I am a kindergarten teacher at Hillside.  This is my 21st year teaching in Hastings and my fourteenth year teaching kindergarten.   I have had the pleasure of being a classroom teacher for grades 1, 2, and 3 as well as working with grades 3 and 4 as a math and reading teacher.  I am very excited to be teaching Kindergarten again this year and look forward to meeting you and your child!
    Hello! My name is Christina Hatjygeorge and I am a kindergarten special education teacher at Hillside. I have been teaching kindergarten special education for many years. I am very excited to continue my journey at Hillside Elementary School! I look forward to meeting you and your child. 
    We are really looking forward to working together with you and your child to make this year amazing!  We believe in small group instruction, fun, and fostering growth toward individual goals.  When you look into our classroom you will see work that is completed by students with teacher encouragement (not everything will be perfect...because we are all learning and growing). Our door is always open to you so please let us know how we can work together :)
    Below is the Fundations Keyword Chart that we have been using to enhance our letter/sound knowledge.  Have your child tell the 'story' of each letter.
