First grade is a special and important year in many ways. We will strengthen our reading and math skills significantly, and practice habits that will help students become leaders of their own learning. During this foundational year, students will also develop lasting attitudes about school and their place in it. Together, we will explore, discover, reflect, celebrate our progress, and work hard in hopes that every student falls in love with learning. Our classroom communication and management is framed by the following values:
Quality – Always do your best.
Integrity – Do the right thing, even when no one is looking.
Community – Treat others with kindness and respect.
Courage- Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
Tenacity- Never, ever give up!
I welcome frequent and open communication with parents, so please contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns. Thank you!
