Most of us were born to be teachers and I was lucky to learn in first grade that my passion was teaching! Here I am in New Jersey living my dream each day! Working with my first graders is my dream job and creating resources to help them learn, learn, learn is becoming something I truly love! Please explore as we embark on our First Grade Escapade! Smiles and Laughs from our classroom to yours!
I believe that every classroom is it's own community, filled with all kinds of learners. In order to have a successful year, all students need to first feel valued, confident, and supported. In my classroom, we are an "Ohana", which means family and family means no one gets left behind! Along with academics, I encourage my students to grow into people who will change the world in a positive way and who throw kindness around like confetti!
