Welcome to Kindergarten at Morris Hill and the classrooms of Mrs. Lopez, Mrs. Vinson, and Mrs. Wyman. At Morris HIll, your kindergartener will begin to make sense of the world around them, foster development of oral language, literacy math, and interpersonal and self-help skills. They will also think, talk, and explore while learning science and social studies concepts. We are so excited to have you here!
I am from Westmoreland, KS where my family still lives. I currently live in Manhattan, KS. This is my 6th year teaching in the ELL kindergarten classroom. I love animals, coffee, and Dr. Seuss. I’m thankful that I get to wake up to a job that I love. Building relationships with my students is very important to me. I’m excited to learn and grow with you this year!
My name is Desiree Lopez. I was born and raised in Southern California. My husband’s enlistment into the Army brought us to Fort Riley, Kansas. This is my 2nd year teaching kindergarten. Kindergarten is my favorite grade to teach because there is so much learning and growing that takes place during this age. My favorite part about my job is watching my students’ faces as they are learning something new for the first time. I am excited to continue watching the students blossom throughout the year!
I am from Melbourne, Florida, but I currently live on Fort Riley. This is my 13th year teaching. I am a military wife and have 3 boys, Kole, Caden, and Connor. I love coffee, crafts, music, traveling, and chocolate. I am so excited to be here teaching Kindergarten (the best grade in the whole school shhhh)!
