Hello My Name Is...
and I am so excited to be your child's first grade teacher this year. I would like to share that I am a mother of two wonderful boys - ages 15 and 12. I have been in the field of education (as a parent volunteer, instructional assistant, and now professional educator) for over 9 years. I taught second grade prior to teaching at Westwood Primary School and I'm so priviledged to work with such a wonderful group of educators, leaders, and friends. It is my hopes that your child will feel loved and safe here at our 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 on the left of this screen or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org any time. I normally check my email before and after school as well as during my conference period, which is at 11:50 - 12:40 daily. Any matter of an urgent nature would require a phone call to the office at (903) 729-1774.
