Debbie Nakamura » Welcome


Hi, my name is Debra Nakamura and I teach kindergarten here at Arlene Bitely Elementary. I have been teaching in this district since 1990. My experience varies from teaching special education (preschool) through 6th grade. 

My philosophy of teaching is that any child can develop a love for learning as long as you nurture and encourage them. 

Some of the things your child will learn this year are: 
-alphabet letter names and sounds 
-phonics skills 
-numbers from 1-120 (counting by rote)
-basic addition and subtraction  
-to become an independent writer 
-social studies 
-physical education
-The Seven Habits of Happy Kids (character education)
