Hi!  Welcome to Kindergarten!  I am looking forward to working with you and 
your child this year.  My name is Ms. Lani Manning and I love teaching 
kindergarten!  This is my 3rd year at Whispering Forest but my 13th year 
teaching.  I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University and received my 
teaching certification from Our Lady of Holy Cross College. I have a 
daughter, her name is Chloe.  She is 13 years old.  We have lived in Slidell 
for 10 years and we love it!

Kindergarten is one of the most incredible years!  It is an exciting time as 
children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning.  I hope to make 
your child's kindergarten learning experience a fun and exciting one.  I also 
hope to instill a love of learning that will last a lifetime.  I am committed 
to creating a positive and nurturing environment where all children feel safe 
and valued.

I believe that a successful school year starts with an open communication 
line between parents and teachers.  Please feel free to call the school or 
email me anytime you have questions or concerns.  We are partners in your 
child's education.  I am so excited about teaching kindergarten at Whispering 
Forest and I am really looking forward to getting to know you and your 
child.  We are going to have a great year!
