Welcome to Mrs. Willfong's Webpage!
I believe that your child comes to me with unique experiences, interests and learning styles. My goal is to truly know your child and use this knowledge to guide, support and motivate him or her. I believe that good teaching requires continual professional development, personal reflection and collaboration. Education is a partnership between home and school. I value your involvement at any and every level and encourage you to take a meaningful part in your child’s learning experience. Please call, write a note, or email me if you have concerns, questions, comments, or volunteer time! My conference period is from 9:55-10:55 each day. I welcome a chance to visit with you. Please call or email me to confirm a time and date.
By Ray A. Lingenfelter
I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there,
The clay they used was a young child's mind
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher:
the tools she used were books and music and art;
One was a parent:
With a guiding hand and gentle loving heart.
And when at last their work was done,
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had worked into the child
Could never be sold or bought!
And each agreed she would have failed
if she had worked alone.
For behind the parent stood the school,
and behind the teacher stood the home!
