Welcome to First Grade!
I am excited to teach first grade again this year. I have been teaching for over 20 years. I have taught kindergarten and first grade during that time. My educational experience includes an endorsement in Early Childhood 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 children and love to observe their journey of learning. Teaching for me is a calling, rather than a job!
When I am not teaching I like to go back packing/hiking, rappelling and traveling with my family. My most recent adventure was hiking the Teton's and rapelling Leprechaun Slot Canyon. Life is an adventure!
This year the added on- line teaching /learning has added an additional challenge/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. If possible, please purchase the black dry erase markers only, as the color markers tend to stain and not wipe off well.
