I am delighted to be your child’s teacher for one of the most important years in their school career. I realize what an awesome responsibility we share as we begin the journey through this year. This is my 25th year teaching and I have my Master’s degree in Elementary Education. All 25 years have been in teaching First grade. I have never gotten tired of the thrill that comes when the children realize that they are able to read, write, and do math by themselves. The search for independence is longer for some than others, but it is a journey we will take together.
We will be spending most of our school day involved in reading, writing and math.
Please put your child’s name on the tags of all loose clothing (sweaters, hats, coats, and sweatshirts).
Please check your child’s bookbag daily. Any and all important information will be sent home in their folder/bookbag.
Parent volunteers are more than welcome to help out in the classroom. If you are unable to come into the classroom, there are many things you can do at home to help me out. Please let me know by either a phone call or a note if you are interested in volunteering your time or talent.
If you ever need to talk to me about your child please feel free to call me at school. The phone number is 799-5211 ext. 61070.
Thank you very much for your cooperation. I will truly do my best to see that every child is successful and that they leave first grade feeling confident and capable.
