I am happy to welcome you to South Newton's Pre-Kindergarten class! I am super excited to meet you at open house, as well as our new Little Leaders!
My name is Ms. Canipe and I have been teaching pre-k for 8 years. I have been with Newton-Conover City Schools for my entire Early Childhood career and strive to serve each student walking through my door to the best of my abilities. Some of my favorite activities outside of the school environment are reading, hiking, camping, and traveling. I am also the lucky mother of two brilliant children, ages 6 and 7. I spend much of my time on self-improvement and strive to follow the 7 Habits in everything I do. I am a strong advocate for children and adults with different and unique abilities, and believe that every person has something important to contribute. I fully believe in forming strong relationships with families and children. My door and heart is always open!
Since, I do not reach my student's alone, I would like to also introduce my teaching assistant, Mrs. Heavner. Mrs. Heavner has also been working in pre-kindergarten for 8 years and students love her. Mrs. Heavner is the Pre-kinder "art specialist" and students enjoy working with her each day or week to create fun and engaging activities tied into our pre-kindergarten curriculum. Her mission is to laugh often and just be happy.
