Welcome to our classroom!
Thank you for sharing your precious child with me this school year. I want our class to be your child's community, where they are active participants, where they will feel cared about by their classmates and their teacher, and where they are inspired to reach their potential.
A classroom must be a highly interactive, exciting, and inquisitive place of learning where all students feel welcomed and challenged. I encourage students to take control of their own learning, to have high personal expectations, to take risks, and to think for themselves.
I encourage my first graders to think about themselves as being life long learners because this opens a world of possibilities for them and allows them to strive towards the high expectations we have for them and they have for themselves.
