I am beyond excited to be your child’s first grade teacher this year! Expect moments of inquiry, collaboration, kindness, and more from students in Room 7. We will create a positive learning community and strengthen our growth mindset on a daily basis this 2019-2020 school year.
This will be my eighth year of teaching with the majority of my experience working with grades K-2nd. I adore this age group...especially all of the light bulb moments, humor, and honesty :-)
I have a few special notes for my students:
*We check out library books on Mondays. I encourage students to turn in their books on the Friday before our visit to the Media Center.
*Please feel free to bring a snack each day for our Recess time. As far as lunch is concerned, you can bring your lunch from home or purchase a meal from the cafeteria. Bottled waters are allowed in class as well.
*Our P.E. days will be every Tuesday and Thursday this year. Don’t forget to wear comfy shoes on these particular days.
*Students are dismissed @1:55 pm each early release Wednesday throughout the school year.
*I use the ClassDojo app for all of my classroom communication -including announcements, information on upcoming school events, and photos.
*Math Tiles are each Friday-right after morning announcements. Parent volunteers are welcome to join us. We usually finish up @9:15 am.
Looking forward to a great year!
