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 11th 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 32 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 graduated from Rochester University in May and is working for the college now. We have a little poodle mix dog that is now 16 - her name is Libby. See the attachments for pictures of my family and little old lady dog! Family Libby
This is going to be a challenging year full of adventures. I look forward to working closely with the parents and others that will be involved in this unique year. It will be exciting to help kids learn and grow (and teachers too) with a dfferent approach. 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!
