Welcome first grade families! I am very excited for this upcoming year and cannot wait to see how much your students grow academically.
This is my first year teaching first grade! Previously, I worked with Special Needs students in an elementary school for a couple of years. Now, I am finishing up my Master's in Education and will have it completed by May 2018. I have no children of my own, but I consider my students and my pets to be my children.
I am very excited to teach first grade because this is the grade that students really learn how to read. Our students also will be learning to write short stories of their own, which can be very rewarding watching them grow as an author. In math, we work on building our strategies and fact fluency, and in science we have a lot of hands-on experiments we get to conduct. First grade is truly an exciting time and your students will be learning a lot. I cannot wait for a great year!
