Welcome to First Grade!
As your child's first grade teacher, I would like to welcome you and your child to the wonderful world of first grade! I am so excited to have your child in my class this year!
I would like to tell you a little about myself. I graduated with a degree in elementary education from Mississippi College. This is my eleventh year teaching first grade at ASE, and I taught for one year in Jackson Public Schools. I was named teacher of the year for the 2012-2013 school year, and I also became a Nationally Board Certified Teacher in 2012. I have lived in Madison County for the last fifteen years with my husband Ryan. We have a five year old son named Eli, and a two year old son named Evan. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, gardening, and spending time with my family. Now that's enough about me...let's get back to the children.
I believe that all children can learn. As an educator, it is my responsibility to teach children in ways that they will be successful. I will provide a learning environment that is not only safe and positive, but also one that promotes self-esteem. My lessons and teaching styles take into account the differences among learners and their unique learning styles. My class list includes the best children at ASE and I will expect the best from them! It is my goal to instill a love of learning that will last throughout your child's life.
I am here for you and your child, and I will welcome any questions or concerns you may have. By working together, I know that we will have a successful year!
