I would like to welcome you all to first grade. I am very excited to meet each and every one of you! I hope you are ready for a fun year of learning (parents too)! This will be my second year as a full time teacher, but I have ten plus years teaching experience. I have adopted a personal motto that "All Children are capable of success, NO EXCEPTIONS!". Having the assumption that ALL children are capable of success drives me to unlock the potential in every student that enters my classroom. I also look forward to working with ALL of my parents, as I have also learned that parents are truly the best teachers. So, lets roll our sleeves up and dig into a fabulous school year of learning together!
