Hello and welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Laura Dantzman and this will be my 21st year of teaching Kindergarten at Stevenson Primary. I am so blessed to be part of a wonderful school family here at Stevenson. My husband and my daughter are also both part of the Alvin ISD family! My husband, Tommy, works in the school district Maintenance Dept. My daughter, Gabby, attends Alvin High School and is a sophmore this year. She plays snare drum on the drumline of the AHS Marching Band.
It is my utmost desire to foster a love of learning in every young child that comes through my classroom door. I believe that one of the "Keys to Success" is to focus first on building a relationship with your child so they feel safe emotionally and physically. I truly believe the other "Key to Success" is for me to work on capturing their "Hearts" first so then, and only then, can I capture their "Minds"! I also feel an Energetic and Engaging Kindergarten Classroom filled with Hands-on Learning is essential for all of my students! Your support and involvement as parents is the other essential piece to your child's success!
Parents: THANK YOU for entrusting me with your precious little ones this school year! I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work with them and watch them grow!
