Teachers: Haleigh Howe and Linda Canuel

Our names are Haleigh Howe and Linda Canuel and we are the teachers who are so blessed to teach the Happy Hoots Kindergarten class at LittleRidge! 2015-2016 was our first year to be able to teach together and it has been a blessing. Mrs. Canuel has been in this position for 5 years and Mrs. Howe taught Kindergarten at Lubbock-Cooper West for 5 years before coming to Lakeridge.

It is our goal to instill a love of Jesus and God’s word, a love of learning, and a love of self in your child.  We will also use Saxon Phonics to teach letter identification and sounds, Handwriting Without Tears to teach letter formation, hands – on experiences to teach Math skills, and a Writer’s Workshop model to teach writing.  Students will also have a Science and Social Studies time each week.  In addition, to academic preparation, your child will have many experiences to foster appropriate social interaction with peers.  We begin each day with a Bible story, and, as the year progresses, we will encourage scripture memorization.  The Happy Hoots class is a wonderful place to learn, play, and grow!
