Creating Seussational Leaders at PLES!


My name is Katrina Bennett.  I am a graduate of Autauga County.  My entire teaching career has been at Pine Level.  Teaching has always been a passion for me.  I have a love for learning and hope to foster a love of learning in my students.  By making my classroom a safe, fun and disciplined place for my students, I hope they enjoy coming to school and learning something new every day.  I feel that all children are different and require specific attention and affection for them to flourish.  I will strive to be that for each of my students; an educator who loves each child that walks in her door and gives him/her not only an education, but a passion to learn.


I attended Alabama A&M University where I graduated with a degree in early childhood education.  I also have a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction.


My entire teaching career has been here at PLES.  I taught 3rd grade for 3 years.  I have taught kindergarten since 2011.

extra clothes

Please send a change of clothes with your child tomorrow.  The clothes will stay in the cubby until needed.  Send a short-sleeve shirt, shorts, socks & underwear in a Ziploc bag with your child’s first and last name.




Reading Log


The S.E.U.S.S. binder has a reading log so that you can write down any books that you read to your child or that he/she reads to you.  Your child should bring home a paper book every Monday.  He/she should be able to read the book to you.  Be sure to set time aside each night to read to or listen to your child read.  Be sure to remind your child to tell me when the log is full so that he/she can receive a new one and visit the treasure box.



Ring Cards

Your child will be required to learn and be tested on 40 sight words this year.  You may have already seen the ring cards in your child’s zipper pouch.  All 40 words were added to ring cards so that you would have access to them as needed. 

I did not mean to overwhelm anyone by sending all 40 words at once.  Please feel free to only flash the ones that we are learning and add the others as needed.  A list of all 40 words was also added to the S.E.U.S.S. binder.  A good suggestion is to add the words by Unit.



                 Treasure Box

I use a class treasure box to encourage and reward good behavior.  Once a student has earned 10 stickers on their behavior chart, he/she can visit the treasure box.  I am asking your help in keeping our class treasure box stocked.  If you are able to send in items (party favors, stickers, bubbles, fun sized candy), it would be greatly appreciated!

I use the Remind app as my primary means of communication (besides the S.E.U.S.S. binder).  If you have not received any messages from me, please let me know so that I can add you.



Teacher Note

  • Please do not hesitate to contact me via the Remind app, e-mail, note in your child’s zipper pouch, or by calling the school and leaving a message if you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns.
