Hi! I'm Lissa Simms, and I'm a Kindergarten teacher at Tosorontio Public School in Everett, Ontario. This is my teaching partner, Angela O'Leary. You are probably here because you are interested in the daily life in our Kindergarten classroom! This is where you will find weekly updates with photos, so we can explain what we are doing and why we are doing it. Every Friday, you will find a new post about one aspect of life in an Ontario Full-Day Kindergarten, along with photos of children busy and engaged in their own learning process.
If you are a Tos Kindergarten parent, please let us know your feedback about this site and any questions about us, the children or the program that we can possibly address on the blog. We know Kindergarten has changed over the years, and it's my mission to help parents navigate that change and understand what we have removed from the classroom, what we are introducing, and what things we have modified. We are excited about important changes we can get behind, and we champion the ageless aspects of a fun, fruitful Kindergarten that have stood the test of time and that we continue to hold dear.
