• It's a Great Day:
    Welcome to First Grade.  My name is Mr. Kuhn and I am one of four First Grade Teachers for the 2017-2018 school year.  I am an award winning, state certified classroom teacher and college instructor, with over 31 years combined teaching experience.  I am honored and proud to be an educator.  My grandparents, aunt, and father were educators.  Teaching is my passion.  I can't imagine doing anything else.
    I understand and value the importance of a quality education.  Therefore, I will do whatever necessary to help children reach their full academic potential.  I have learned through the years that successful students come from successful classrooms.  My classrooms are successful due to the many academic and classroom management strategies that I have employed over the years.  I believe students learn best when they have clear boundaries, a safe environment, and consistent direction.  I hope you do too.
    If you have questions or concerns about anything classroom related, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I am happy to speak with you in detail, at your convenience.   My objective is the education of the children in my charge.  Your support and confidence in me is much appreciated.  Thank you for visiting my site.  I hope to meet you in person soon.
