Hello from Ms Goonan!

  • I am so thrilled to be teaching Kindergarten this year at Elon Elementary. I have been teaching at Elon since January 2021 as a global ambassador teacher with Participate Learning. As you might have guessed from my bitmoji classroom picture, I am from Sydney, Australia.

    I am an experienced teacher and have taught Kindergarten through to Grade 6 for over 12 years. Kindergarten is one of my favorite grades to teach because it is so rewarding helping students to learn the important foundations of reading, writing and numeracy.

    When I am not teaching, some of my favorite things to do include exploring new places, reading books, listening to informative podcasts, engaging in creative art projects and going on adventures in nature. 

    One thing about me that I make sure my students know, is that I absolutely love teaching and I love learning. I communicate this to them via my words and actions everyday.

    I am excited to be teaching your child in their important first year of elementary education. I look forward to working hard to ensure they have a strong, nurturing start to Kindergarten.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
