Mrs. Amy McFarland

Tell us about yourself:

I live in the Midcoast with my husband, children, and dog (Bosley). I received my Bachelor's in early elementary education and then pursued my Master’s in Special Education with minor in Early Intervention. My work background is in behavior management and early childhood intervention.

In my spare time, I enjoy relaxing with my family and taking part in Mini Cooper Rallies throughout New England.

Tell us why you like to teach Kindergarten:

This will be my first time teaching Kindergarten. What drew me to this position is my interest in early childhood and my passion for continuing to nurture children as they start their academic careers.

What are your favorite student units:

I enjoy teaching literacy. There are variety of creative ways to encourage literacy and make it fun!

What is your parent contact plan:

I will be available via phone, email, ClassDojo, or written notes. I know schedules can make it tricky to touch base. Please communicate with me in whatever way is most convenient for you.

What are your homework guidelines:

Kindergarten is often the first time many children have been exposed to school. The daily schedule is full of engaging activities which require the children to maintain focus. After a long day they may need some down time. Please take time to read to your child every night and if home supports are necessary to help meet academic goals I will make suggestions.
