Course Description: Want to know the best thing about being kind? It’s contagious. This club will focus on activities that make the school a kinder place. We want to start small here in our classroom, and then to the school, and then to the community. This will include conducting random acts of kindness, kindness drives, and so much more! But the good deeds won’t stop at the front door. The squad spreads happiness before and after school during carline, lunch and at recess! Don't forget to always choose to be kind! Instructors: Kelsie Siporen & Maddie King Instructor Bios: Kelsie Siporen - My education background includes a Bachelor of Science Degree in Integrated Elementary Teaching. I completed my program through UNR and I earned a dual licensure in Elementary Education (K-8) and Special Education (K-12). When I am not in the classroom you can find me out adventuring! I love hanging out with my family as well as the family dogs: Coco, Chewy, and the pup, Kal! We love to take walks and hikes around the beautiful Northern Nevada area. I am excited to meet you all and I can’t wait to see what incredible things this club does!
