Welcome to Room 9!

As a first grade team, we are privileged to teach and help guide your child through a year of exploration and discovery and exciting learning! We work hard at developing a safe, caring, and comfortable environment for students to learn in. We appreciate your partnership and support through a year that promises to be fun and memorable.

Throughout the year I look forward to developing our classroom and school community. 

I look forward to meeting all of you over the upcoming weeks. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, comments or celebrations!
