    Dear Parents/Guardians

    I hope that you, your child and family had an amazing summer together! Welcome to the 2023-2024 School Year. Welcome to Kindergarten. My name is Mrs.Pramawattie Springer, the Inclusion teacher  and together with Mrs. Bitengo Kiage, we will be your child’s Kindergarten co- teachers for the 2023-2024 school year. This is my 18th year teaching in Orange Township, my 10th year at Forest Street Community School and I am excited about the new friends and all the new learning experiences ahead of us.

    I studied at Montclair State University where I completed my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education and Masters in Education (SpEd).

    I am a firm believer that every student has their own individual way of learning and we must embrace that. I believe that it is necessary to build a strong and solid foundation for lifelong learning by nurturing, guiding, and motivating students to reach their full potential. It is our goal to provide a flexible, innovative, and resourceful approach to the teaching and learning process, meeting the unique needs of each individual student.  We realize that this year is unique in many ways and as such, our learning experiences may differ from the traditional brick and motor experiences in the schoolhouse. We want to assure you that we will still have an amazing learning experiences and your child will receive the very best instruction and support that will help him/her grow to their full potential.

    Through experience, both as a teacher and parent, I have realized the impact that educators can have on the lives of their students. In order to maximize the learning experience, we must work together. It is my hope that together we will collaborate and communicate so as to ensure our children have everything they need to succeed as we begin our virtual learning experience this school year.

    I look forward to this exciting, productive year ahead. Please rest assured that we will provide exceptional learning experiences to our children. We are a team, and I am counting on you to make our children’s kindergarten experience exceptional.

    Listed below is my school email. If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to reach out to me via email or classdojo.
