Christmas is always a favourite time of the year for the staff and students at Mountview Elementary School, and particularly for Theresa Herrling and her kindergarten students.
“The kids are just so excited and happy, waiting for Christmas to come,” said Herrling, who has been a teacher for the past 20 years in School District 27, 12 of those as a kindergarten teacher.
“We traditionally have a tree and make decorations to hang. Of course this year looks a little different but it’s still all about the kids.”
Her class has a fireplace display and students lace paper stockings to hang by the fire. Christmas stories are read daily. And, of course, the class elf comes to visit the class every December.
This year the students practiced for a Christmas concert, which was recorded and sent virtually to families.
Herrling said she loves her students and her job noting, “how can you not when you see those cute little faces?”
