About Me

My name is Holly Srayko.  I am excited to be your child's teacher this year.  Kindergarten is a very exciting time full of new experiences, friends, and a lot of learning everyday.  I am looking forward to growing and learning with you and your child.

I grew up in Airdrie and graduated from Bert Church High School.  After high school I attended the University of Lethbridge.  I taught middle school for my first few years but when the opportunity to teach Kindergarten came I jumped at it.  I spent the last sixteen years teaching Kindergarten at Ralph McCall School.  Needless to say, I have found my place in this world and love coming to work everyday to help my students learn.

I strive to make our classroom a bright, cheerful, and safe environment for the children.  I sincerely believe that learning should be real and relevant for children.  I endeavor to structure my kindergarten program around the process of learning.  When children are able to make meaning of learning for themselves they are much more likely to retain their knowledge.  In addition, when children are able to work at an appropriate level they are more likely to see themselves as capable and therefore are more confident in themselves as learners.

The Kindergarten curriculum is divided into seven strands in Alberta.  These strands are Early Literacy, Mathematics, Citizenship and Identity, Physical Skills and Well Being, Creative and Cultural Expression, Personal and Social Responsibility, and Environment and Community Awareness.  These strands provide the foundation for all of our learning in Kindergarten.  I weave these strands into many inquiry based units and projects over the course of the year.

Let's have a great year together!
