All About Mrs. Gilstrap

I have been teaching kindergarten for 15 years.  I have been at Bathgate for the past 12 years.  I enjoy teaching and working with children.  

Some of my hobbies include watching football, going to the river, beach or really doing anything outside with my family.  I live in Mission Viejo with my husband Chris.  We have a son, Parker who will turned seven in May.

Educational Philosophy

I believe that children come to kindergarten with varied abilities.  My goal is to help each child reach their potential and foster a love and enthusiasm for learning.  I create a positive and accepting classroom environment where your child is able to build the confidence and knowledge necessary to succeed in school.  My endeavor is the following:                  

Create a warm and caring environment

Offer a variety of experiences that are meaningful, relevant and fun

Maintain expectations that are high, but attainable

Use positive reinforcements so that all children will believe that can reach their full potential

Involve parents in their child's education
