This is my eighth year teaching first grade, and I could not imagine myself anywhere else! From teaching my firsties how to read to celebrating the 100th day of School in super-hero style, I absolutely love it!
I pride myself on holding very high expectations for my first grade friends, and I encourage my students to become lifelong learners as well as productive citizens in our classroom community. I love watching my students learn to become independent problem-solvers, and I enjoy teaching through songs, games, and hands-on activities.
