Core Virtue

Our core virtue for February is Love of Country

This is defined as being devoted to our nation-loving its ideals, honoring its heroes, respecting its past and learning from it, and working hard for a just and nobel future. 

Even with her flaws, our country is a beautiful place, with amazing potential. Developing a love for our country is how that potential is realized and how the future can be better than the past! 

Here are some ideas that you could do this month for

  • Learn the words to the Pledge of Allegience.
  • Help to beautify our country by picking up trash or planting a garden. 
  •  Smile at someone to help them feel special.

Ms. Sudan

Hi, my name is Carol Sudan. I have taught Kindergarten here at Vanguard for 4 years. I graduated from UNLV with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. My boys are both grown. I love teaching Kindergarten! I enjoy reading mystery novels, traveling, and nature. I am looking forward to another great year in Kindergarten here at Vanguard!

Ms. Anderson

Hello. My name is Brandy Anderson and I am an Educational Assistant in Kindergarten. My son has been a student at Vanguard for 6 years and I jumped at the opportunity to join the amazing staff here! Before coming to work at Vanguard, I spent 15 years teaching at a massage therapy school. I loved being in the classroom and being a part of the “magic” that occurs when minds are expanding and skills are being learned. I am excited to be a part of the same “magic” in kindergarten! Outside of work, I still have an active massage practice in which my clients are primarily children with physical and/or intellectual disabilities. I have a 9 year old son who brings me so much joy! As a family, we enjoy playing board games, watching movies and breathing the fresh mountain air whenever possible, especially in the fall.


Ms. Kim

Hi! My name is Jill Kim and I am so excited to be working in kindergarten again this year! I have taught at Vanguard East since we opened six year ago. I taught third grade for five year, and this is my second year in kindergarten. I am originally from Wyoming and that is where I earned my elementary education degree. I also have a Master's degree in reading. I love getting to work with brand new readers and getting them to love reading like I do. When I am not teaching, I like to do arts and crafts and watch sports.

Ms. Elmer
