Welcome to first grade! I love it here!
I have been teaching first grade at SJA for over 14 years. Previously, I taught every grade except kindergarten and third grade in Northwestern Ohio and Kentucky. First grade is my favorite by far! I have found my own personal heaven!
I absolutely love sharing my passion for reading with my students. I firmly believe that books open the world to those who love them. I am fascinated by numbers and the way they work together to form patterns with one another and the universe. Mostly, I am passionate about sharing with my students a love for the world and its people. Celebrating world cultures and beliefs are central to our classroom identity. These are all ways to celebrate our faith and our reverence for God's creation.
