    Professional Biography: My name is Kristy Boyd and I am an all day kindergarten teacher at Tumwater Hill Elementary.  I have taught kindergarten in both Yelm and Tumwater school districts. Kindergarten is an exciting year of growth and change. Everyday students learn to read, write, work with numbers and so much more. They also focus on working with peers through play and cooperative learning experiences. I use songs and movement to learn new concepts. I have four kids of my own who have been through kindergarten. I try to see my kinders through the eyes of a parent. As a parent I hoped for a teacher that would provide a safe and happy environment to learn in. Once kids feel safe and happy then they are ready to do their best, brave enough to take risks, and they learn to try, try again and succeed. Thank you for sharing your kids with me each day. They bring a lot of joy to the classroom with their enthusiasm and energy.
