My name is Alicia Lochridge and I have been teaching since 2003. Of this time, I have taught first grade for 7 years. I love teaching first grade and can't imagine a better way to spend my days! I love watching the little ones learn and grow. I feel that children learn best with a variety of strategies, approaches, and high expectations. My vision is to offer quality products that promote the academic rigor of the Common Core State Standards.
