Welcome to a new school year and new adventure! We are excited to start the year with you and your child! Here’s a little information about both of us so you can get to know us a little bit before we start the school year.
Hello KA Rockstars!
My name is Kelly Sundquist and I am excited to be your child’s Kindergarten teacher! While my home of record is Minnesota in the United States, I have moved around quite a bit as kid while my dad served in the military until I was in 6thgrade. This is one of the reasons why I am passionate about TCKs (third culture kids). This is my first year at Shekou International School. Prior to moving to Shenzhen, I taught for three years in Korea. I have also taught in the United States and Qingdao, China.
Overall, this is my 18th year as a teacher. I have been a special education teacher, general education teacher, intervention teacher, reading specialist, and program coordinator & educational therapist. I am very passionate about education~ how the brain works, phonics, teaching strategies, allowing students to show their skills at different rates and in different ways, expressing our emotions, and having students explore their surroundings in a comfortable learning environment through play, inquiry, and positive school relationships. I hope you love to sing songs, dance, do crafty projects, and dress-up!
I cannot wait to go on this great adventure with your children for the 2018-2019 school year!
