Our class is a literacy centered environment, filled with energetic first graders who are eager to learn. We are daily engaged in compelling books read aloud, shared with friends, and read independently. These students are intrinsically motivated as they experience the thrill of learning and sample opportunities that lie ahead in their education. Values of respect, kindness, hard work, and responsibility are foundations for the learning environment we share.
I have been teaching in this district for more than 10 years now, and recently completed a Master's in Education. It is so much fun to see current and former students continue to learn and grow. Their imaginations, energy and enthusiasm for learning fuel my efforts as a teacher.
