Ms. Kristina Fraunberger

Hello Langtree Families, and welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!
A little about myself:  I have a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Rider University and obtained my teaching certificate from Rutgers University. This is my second year as a Preschool teacher within the Hamilton School District, prior to Hamilton I taught 1st grade for 3 years in Newark, NJ. 
Fun facts about myself: I have a cat named Peanut, and I'm a lover of Science Fiction. I have a passion for traveling. Last summer I checked an item off of my bucket list, as I back-packed through France and Italy. Truly an incredible experience! :)
My philosophy of teaching is simple - Growth mindset plays a huge role in ones learning, both academically, socially, and emotionally. It's not about how many times you get knocked down, it's about resilience, learning to persevere and never giving up. I believe in meeting each child where they are and, providing them the tools and guidance to take them to the next step. I believe that academics is just as important as social/emotional learning. It is important to also teach children how to be positive, well rounded, kind hearted, respectful and contributing members of society. 
I know this school year will be a little different then we have been used to, but rest assured we have plans in place to make it both a safe and fun learning experience. I believe in parent and teacher communication, and I encourage you to never hesitate to contact me. We have a new domain in Hamilton this year so please take note of my updated email address:
I look forward to working with all of you this year!
