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, yoga, and spending time with my two dogs Breezy and Beau!
Let's have an awesome year!
