I am so excited to teach your student this year! We are going to have a lot of fun in first grade. We will explore the world through themed lessons each week. This approach helps the students remember what they’ve learned and find ways to apply their new knowledge.

Volunteers are welcome to help in class. Volunteer forms are available in the office.

Please send in a note to me if your child is: absent, leaving for appointment, leaving early or has a change in transportation after school. These notes can be sent to school in your child’s practice work folder.


Contact Information

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I can return calls between 8:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m., and after school, and I will respond to e-mail as soon as possible. You can also send me a note with your student in his/her practice work folder.
