CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. – Croton residents know how exceptional Carrie E. Tompkins Elementary School's kindergarten program is, and the school welcomed Pearl River teachers to observe their kindergarten classes.
“Our kindergarten program provides students with a strong foundation to start their educational journey,” said CET Principal Kelly Maloney. The district often welcomes teachers and administrators from nearby schools looking to learn from CET's best practices and integrate them into their own lessons.
Most recently, one elementary school principal and three kindergarten teachers from Pearl River stopped by CET, where they observed a hands-on math lesson, student/teacher interactions and more.
“There is a strong emphasis on addressing the social and emotional needs of our students and providing them with the necessary skills to be independent learners,” Maloney said. “The positive classroom communities promote collaboration and foster a love of learning.”
