    About the Teacher: 

    Hello! Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! My name is Mrs. Eckert, and I am so happy to be your child's teacher. This will be my 11th year of teaching. I taught first grade for one year in another district, and this is my 10th year of teaching kindergarten at Ledgeview. Teaching is a true passion of mine and I love being a kindergarten teacher! Every day in kindergarten is an exciting adventure. I hope that I can instill a love of learning in your child as our class learns, grows, and explores together this year.

    Here is some information about me so that you can get to know me a little bit better.

    I have lived in New York my whole life, and I went to Williamsville Schools. I then attended SUNY Geneseo for four years, where I received my Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary and Special Education. I later attended the University at Buffalo where I recieved my Masters Degree in literacy.

    My husband Chris and I live in Amherst, with our two boys. Our oldest son, Nolan, is just turning 5 years old, and will be starting kindergarten this year too! My younger son's name is Austin and he just turned 2 years old this summer. Our boys bring so much joy to our lives and we love watching them grow and learn!

    I feel so fortunate to be a part of the Ledgeview community. I look forward to getting to know you and your family this year. I know that this is going to be a wonderful year in kindergarten!
