Hello First Grade Families!
I am excited to be a part of your child's learning experiences this year.
This is my third year at Summerwind and my thirteenth year teaching first grade. I absolutely LOVE being a part of the Summerwind STEM community! . I graduated from Boise State University in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education and got my Master’s degree in May 2015 in English as a New Language.
I got married in 2013 to my husband Jake and we have two kids: our three year old daughter Julia and our one year old son Connor. Most of my time away from school is spent taking care of them. We enjoy being outside and trying to provide the kids with new, fun experiences. I love seeing them grow and watching as they discover and learn new things.
That is also why I enjoy teaching first grade. It is such a fun age and the growth each student makes during the year is amazing! I hope we can work together as a team this year to aid your child in doing their best each day. Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns. Email is usually the best way to reach me. firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's have a great year!
