My Home Page

  • Welcome to my new classroom website!


    My name is Mrs. Brenda Graves-Chestnut, Kindergarten Teacher. I have been teaching at Hamlin Park Academy for about 10 years, and prior to that I taught at Stepping Stone Academy Charter School for 5 years.

    I will be spending some time getting everything together but would appreciate any suggestions along the way.

    There are many areas to the website that I know you will find great value in. My goal is to make the website not just a tool for me, as the teacher, but to connect with parents, and also use it as a learning tool and resource for the students.

    This year the students will be having lots of fun learning many new and different things. There will be lots of hands on activities, and many learning areas that the students will be learning from. Students will have a homework packet to work on each week so that parents will be abreast of whats happening in the classroom. Also the homework will give each child the opportunity to practice at home. Your child's learning experience will be based on 6 reading units and 6 math modules for the year. Your support and attention to these units will be quite important in your child's learning experience.

    I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year. He/She will find it to be a viable learning experience.

    Please feel free to contact me at anytime should you have any questions or concerns. I can be reached Monday-Friday, 8:30-3:00 pm. My goal is for us to work in harmony.

    Have a great year!
