The Kindergarten Team
Welcome to Ms. Towns' and Mr. Bishop's Kindergarten Class!
I am Vonetta Towns, a kindergarten teacher at Perkerson Elementary. I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA and I am a proud product of the Atlanta Public Schools System. I am a graduate of Albany State University with a B.S. degree in Early Childhood Education. I believe all children have the ability to learn and with the skills that I have acquired I am honored to be able to teach the future leaders of tomorrow!
My mission for my class is to develop my student's reading, writing, and math skills to his/her fullest potential while creating a positive safe learning environment where the student will flourish not only academically but socially as well. In our class all learning styles are addressed and students get to participate in engaging activities.
Technology is infused in the curriculum that is being taught as much as possible through our daily routines and lessons. Already, students have learned to work in cooperative groups in order to foster teamwork. Higher order thinking skills are also incorporated in all subjects, concepts, and skills taught.
Lastly, it is extremely important to have open lines of communication with parents so that we can work together as a team in the intellectual growth and development of our children, and to promote the fundamentals of responsibility and accountability students should have in order to succeed.
