Welcome to a new school year! I am excited to meet my students and their families this year!
It is my pleasure and honor to work with your child for this special year of first grade. I take this responsibility very seriously and will work closely with the rest of the staff at Grant to keep on track and to make the most of your child’s learning time. First grade is a special year to discover that learning is fun and exciting. I look forward to getting to know each student. I will share my love of learning with your young learner and encourage him/her to explore areas that interest them.
As we begin this time together, I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. This will be my 10th year teaching first grade. I also taught kindergarten and did some substituting as well as being a stay at home mom in the past. My husband Dan and I have been married for 31 years and are empty nesters. We have 2 wonderful daughters that we enjoy! Our oldest daughter works for a nonprofit that assists people coming out of homelessness by furnishing their home with donated furniture and goods. Our younger daughter is a senior at Rochester University in Rochester Hills, Michigan where she is majoring in theater management. We have a little poodle mix dog that is now 15 - her name is Libby. See the attachments for pictures of my family and little old lady dog! Family Libby
There are many great things going on at our school this year, both academically and socially. I hope you and your family will be proactive in joining in the things going on at this wonderful school. I truly look forward to a fun year with your child! I am always ready to help if you have questions or concerns. Feel free to email, set up a time to for me to call you, or make an appointment to come in when necessary. I believe that good communication is essential to your child’s success and hope that we will both feel comfortable staying in touch. We are a team!
