Hi there friends! My name is Kendall Garno-Foote and I am so excited to be part of the Kindergarten teacher team here! I am actually from Greensburg, Indiana but have spent the past 4 years exploring and enjoying Terre Haute. I graduated Honors and Summa Cum Laude (4.0 GPA) from Indiana State University in May of 2021 with my Bachelors in Elementary Education and minors in Language Studies and English as a Second Language. Some things I enjoy outside of school are playing music, watching theater productions, playing games with friends and family, and singing at the top of my lungs.
This year will be my first year teaching Kindergarten, but I spent all of last year student teaching in Mrs. Halls’s Kindergarten class here at DeVaney. So I am even more thrilled to be an official DeVaney Dragon! I cannot wait to see what this year brings for us as Kindergarten is such a fun and amazing experience for your little scholar. It will be a year filled with new friends, new adventures, new discoveries, and so much growth! I hope you and your student will love our class and the exciting journey we will go on together this year.

Classroom Rules

  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Safe
  • Be Kind

Student behavior is managed using a positive system called clipping up.  All students begin the day on green.  As students display positive behavior, they move their clip up the chart.  The idea is to reward positive behavior.  If a student breaks a rule, he/she will have their clip moved down and could face various consequences.  However, students always have opportunities during the school day to bring their clip back up.
