KINDERGARTEN

Kindergarten Curriculum Overview: 

Language Arts Overview: Kindergarten students see why it is important to read, read, and read some more! The students are very involved with reading readiness skills and application during Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop.


Mathematics Overview: Building the basic foundation skills by developing number sense. Kindergarten students will understand and apply strategies that allow them to use addition, subtraction, and solve word problems.


Science Overview: We are so excited about the new FOSS program! We began the program talking about the many uses of wood. Kindergarten students are doing many hands on activities to get to know the world around them.


Social Studies Overview: What makes a community? How do I fit in? What are some stories of the past? Your child will grow to understand the benefits and responsibilities of living in a community, while appreciating the differences in others.




Meet Our Kindergarten Teachers: 


Mrs. Martin

Hello!  Let me introduce myself.  My name is Victoria Martin and I am a Kindergarten teacher at Troy Hills School.  I have been teaching for the past thirty-one years and I have been at Troy Hills School for the past twenty-seven years.  My first teaching job was as a pre-school teacher and then, as a second-grade teacher.  I came to Troy Hills many years ago and taught third grade.  I became a first-grade teacher twenty-three years ago. This is where I found my passion and purpose in life! I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Kutztown University and my Master’s Degree from Centenary College.  I am now a clinical faculty member at Montclair State University.  I enjoy being a mentor to new teachers and I absolutely love being a “Target Teach” teacher for seniors from Parsippany High School.  It is amazing to work with my former first graders who are now seniors interested in becoming teachers. When I am not at school, I spend my time with my husband and our two sons. I love photography, scrapbooking, painting and of course, those of you who know me, know I love...Winnie-the-Pooh!

Hi, I am a Kindergarten teacher here at Troy Hills Elementary School. I am a graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education. I started my teaching career at Troy Hills School over two decades ago and I’m proud to still be teaching here today! I have taught many grade levels at Troy Hills and feel that my experience at multiple grade levels has made me a diverse and well-versed teacher. I have had the pleasure of teaching 1st through 4th grade. My goal is to help each and every student reach their full potential and to promote a love of learning in my classroom. Away from the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
