    "According to all the laws of aerodynamics, a bumblebee should not be able to fly. Its wingspan is too small for the size of its body. It can't get enough lift. But here's the key: Nobody told the bumblebee, so it flies anyway. It just did what was natural and started flapping its wings and took off into the air." -Mary Kay Ash

    Sometimes in life we have to soar beyond our expectations smile emoticon Welcome and fly high in first grade!!!

    About Me: I, Lakesha Golden, earned a Professional Educator's License in Elementary Education (K-6), Middle Grades Language Arts (6-9), and English (9-12). I also earned a Master of Arts in Teaching from Salem College. I gladly serve as a Kindergarten Teacher at Konnoak Elementary in Winston-Salem, NC.

    I firmly believe that all students are learners. I believe that teachers should prepare students to become life-long learners by helping to establish a school environment and a classroom that is high achieving, caring, safe, and prepares students for 21st Century Learning.

    As a current Kindergarten teacher, I have gained immeasurable knowledge by preparing students to be 21st Century Learners, developing classroom management skills, and gaining knowledge of several effective teaching strategies that infuses differentiation, rigor, and integrated subjects.
