Welcome to First Grade!
I am excited to teach first grade again this year. I have been teaching for over 21 years. I have taught kindergarten and first grade during that time. My educational experience includes an endorsement in Early Childhood Special Eduation and a masters degree in Early Childhood.
I love teaching and being around children and know that all children can learn when there are consistent, unchanging targets. I love to observe the process of how children learn, progress, and change through the journey of learning and love being involved with that journey.
When I am not teaching I like to go back packing/hiking, rappelling and traveling with my family. My most recent adventure was learning to scuba dive, which was harder than I expected, and hiking Exit Glacier in Alaska. Life is an adventure!
I look forward to another great adventure this year in first grade teaching your child.
SCHOOL SUPPLIES: Some of the items on the list I have a surplus of, or do not need. Hope this information saves you time and money. You will not need to purchase the wide ruled paper, highlighters, batteries, and we will only use 1 pocket folder. If possible, please purchase the black dry erase markers only, as the color markers tend to stain and not wipe off well.
