Hello My Name Is...
and I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year. I want to tell you a little bit about myself. This is my twelfth year teaching first grade here at Westwood Primary School. I am married to Jeff Doran who is privileged to serve you as judge of the Anderson County Court at Law. We have five children and eleven grandchildren. My family moved around a lot when I was a child and, as a result, I am very sensitive to students who find themselves in a new classroom situation. I work hard to make all my students feel loved and safe here at school.
First grade is a very tough transition from kindergarten. I will need you to work diligently at home as we work hard in the classroom to make sure your child is successful in first grade. There is so much to learn!
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. You can use the Contact Me link in the yellow box on the left of this screen or email me at email@example.com any time. I normally check my email before and after school as well as during my conference period, which is at 9:40-10:30 daily. Any matter of an urgent nature would require a phone call to the office at (903) 729-1774.
