Welcome to First Grade!
I THINK FIRST GRADE IS BEST ! 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 know that all children can learn when there are consistent targets that are unchanging. I love setting educational goals with my students and love watching them work to reach their goal. 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/rappelling Little Blue John in Utah. I believe that learning is an adventure.
I look forward to another great adventure this year in first grade teaching your child.
