Welcome to Diamond Lakes Elementary School. What a pleasure it is to have the opportunity to educate your child this school year! Let me begin by introducing myself. My name is Kesha Chivers (pronounced like shivers). I taught 2nd grade at Diamond Lakes Elementary for 10 years and 3rd grade in Burke County for 6 years. I have also taught 1st grade at Diamond Lakes. This is my second year being a Special's teacher, where I see all of the students in the school at least once a week for 45 minutes. I teach them writing and we incorporate STEAM activities. This is my 19th year teaching and I love it!
I believe that a good learning experience is built on a cooperative effort between parent, child, and teacher. My expectations for conduct and standards for academic growth are high. With your participation, we can look forward to a productive, creative and fun year together!
My philosophy of education is very simple. I believe...
- children should be active participants in the learning process.
- teaching is a lifelong process; thus, it is necessary to constantly explore new teaching strategies and concepts.
- parental involvement is essential for a child’s total educational development.
- learning should be fun, exciting, and stimulating.
I have planned many challenging and exciting activities that are designed to provide optimum educational experiences in our classroom!
