Welcome to First Grade!
Hi my name is Jennifer Barnes and I am so happy to be your child's first grade teacher. First grade is an exciting year and together we will be learning so much!
I am passionate about both teaching and learning! I enjoy teaching all children and believe any child can learn in a safe and nurturing environment. In my classroom, mistakes are welcomed and a way to learn! My goal is to have my students feel safe to take academic risks when learning something new without fear of judgment. I establish this practice by making sure I set up a respectful learning environment where we celebrate each others’ accomplishments. My personal hobbies include reading, rock climbing, and spending time with my two dogs Breezy and Beau!
Let's have an awesome year!
