Mrs. Vaughan - Room 03

WELCOME TO KINDERGARTEN at St. Vincent de Paul School! We are an all-day, five-day kindergarten program. Each day the students are provided opportunities to grow socially, academically and spiritually.

I am Julie Vaughan.  This is my sixteenth year teaching kindergarten at St. Vincent de Paul.  I am from Omaha and graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a Bachelor's in Elementarty Education.  I also received a Master's of Science in Education with an emphasis on Educational Technology from Peru State College.  I am very excited about working with you and your child this year! 

Kindergarten has three full-time associates, Mrs. Barb Sisson, Mrs. Donna Morgenson, and Mrs. Lynn Rakoczy, who are assets to our team!  Their presence allows for more interaction between the students and teachers and for small-group activities to meet students' individual needs.

In Kindergarten, we build on the the students' eagerness to learn.  We will work on strengthening their social skills, creating many new friendships and developing independence.

The students are actively engaged in hands-on activities throughout the day and will adjust quickly to the new schedule and routines.

One of my passions is teaching reading.  I love to watch the students develop their reading skills over the school year!  Working with your child at home on reading, sight words, and comprehension teaches them that reading is all around them!  Here are some resources to help you explore reading with your child.

A little about me:  My husband, Dusty, and I have four children, ages 3-11.  I love spending time with them, watching their sporting events, dance recitals, and of course, reading with them!  We also love to go out to dinner and the movies!  I love St. Vincent de Paul-- this school and church is my second home.  I feel so blessed to be a part of such an amazing community! 

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns at 492-2111 or email me.
