My name is Joyce Mucher and I am currently the kindergarten teacher at Penryn School. I began my teaching career at Penryn in 1987 and have taught kindergarten, first, second and fifth grades. I love teaching at a rural school and can’t imagine ever being anywhere other than Penryn.
The world of kindergarten is a magical place where joyful learning happens each and every day. Although the academic demands in kindergarten have certainly changed over the years, I wholeheartedly adhere to the philosophy that childhood is a journey, not a race. A typical day in our classroom includes not only reading, writing and math, but also exploring, creating, singing, dancing and laughing.
