Dear Kindergarten Families,

My name is Ms. Tolbert. I am very excited to be BFS’s Kindergarten teacher this year! I can’t wait to meet your child and learn more about them, but first, I will tell you a little about myself.

I was born and raised in Columbia, Missouri. I love to go to Cardinals baseball games and cheer on the Mizzou tigers. I graduated from the University of Missouri with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. After completing my degree I also became certified in Early Childhood Education. I recently finished my Masters in Teaching English as a Second Language. 

This is my eighth year as a teacher. I have taught fifth, kindergarten, and adult ELL students. Kindergarten is my favorite grade to teach! When I am not teaching I enjoy hiking and traveling to new places. I am new to Korea and I am so excited to learn about and explore this wonderful country. 

My goal for this school year is for every student to learn and grow. I believe that every student is important and unique and these differences will all impact us in a positive way! Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.
