Welcome to First Grade!!!

I want to welcome you to our classroom! I am so excited to be your child's first grade teacher for the remainder of this year and I am looking forward to getting to know the children and families I serve. In this classroom we work on the whole child's development, embedding multimodal learning opportunities to help your children grow using an interdisciplinary approach. I provide a language-rich environment through book readings, individual and group discussions, writing activities, and environmental print throughout the classroom. I utilize my training in nonviolent communication and conscious discipline, combined with our Capturing Kid's Hearts Curriculum, to focus on the children's social and emotional development to prepare them for learning. It is my ultimate goal from the very beginning to build a strong foundation for a love of learning, moving toward graduation that will lead to your child's ultimate success in life.
