Hi! I'm Mrs. Manimbo. I'm a born and raised Florida girl who recently moved to Colorado with my husband, Danny, and fur baby, Rocky. My little family means everything to me and I talk about them often throughout the year! I'm a true Hurricane from the University of Miami...Go Canes! It was while studying psychology there that I developed a deep interest in child development which led me to pursue a career in teaching and I've never looked back.
This is my 3rd year at The Academy but my 5th year teaching Kindergarten. I love working with this age and seeing what these students can achieve when we have high expectations for all of them. I pride myself in having strong classroom management and like my classroom to run like a well oiled machine. This is done through having clear expectations and structured routines while making learning fun for everyone! I believe in setting small achievable goals to help build self confidence. My very favorite thing about this magical grade is being a part of so many light bulb moments when I see something new click inside the students minds and their little faces light right up with excitement. It is so incredible to see how far the students come from August to May!
Some of the special things about my Kindergarten class are Pink Club Lunches (small group student-teacher lunches as a reward for positive behavior), Show & Tell, Homework Champions, whole class rewards, and a large amount of parent involvement in and out of the classroom to name a few. I really enjoy the relationships that are developed with both students and parents throughout the year so I'm looking forward to meeting you soon!
