Mrs. Tillema

Welcome to Transitional Kindergarten!

My name is Mrs. Tillema.  I started my teaching career in 2002 and taught 8th grade science for close to 10 years.  I was also the Mandarin-Chinese Enrichment teacher here at Franklin from 2012 to 2017.     

I believe in the power of the "gift of time."  Being in TK allows children the extra time needed to grow and mature before they enter Kindergarten.  I look forward to helping your child be developmentally ready (both socially and emotionally) & laying down a great academic foundation, so they have the confidence to thrive and succeed in the upcoming years.

Thanks for your help and support in advance, both in school and at home. 

Cheers to an amazing school year together!!
