Welcome to first grade! As parents, you may be feeling a little concerned with the many adjustments and changes for the school year. Trust that soon those concerns will be put to ease. Your children will enjoy all of the first grade teachers (we make a great team) and have a positive year.
I have three children. Joshua and Jordan (girl) are 8 years old and are in Third Grade. Hollee is five years old and just started Kindergarten. I have been married to Matt, who works in Corporate Communications at Lexmark, for 10 years.
I went to Georgetown College. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Psychology. I have a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Development.
I taught Kindergarten for 7 years at Dixie Magnet Elementary in Lexington. I taught a Kindergarten/First Grade mix for a year at the same school. I taught First Grade for a year at Anne Mason before deciding to stay home with my three children. At the time, all of my children were home and I wanted to enjoy those early years, before they were all grown up. :)
I have a heart for children. I feel they are important and that giving them a strong academic foundation is a priority for their future. I look forward to our school year. I am blessed to be your child’s teacher and I feel confident that we will have a successful, fun year.
