I am so glad to be your teacher this year! I hope you are having a wonderful summer. Have you been swimming, riding your bike, or reading? I have been too! I can’t wait to get to know you and hear all about your summer.
This will be my eleventh year teaching elementary school. I have been a second and third grade teacher as well as a reading and math specialist. I am so excited for my new adventure teaching first grade! I live in Winona with my husband Nathan who is a physics teacher at Winona State. We have four kids. Our youngest son John will be in kindergarten at St. Mary’s. Our sons Henry and Jacob, will be in third and fourth grade here at St. Stan’s. Our daughter Olivia will be in eighth grade at Cotter.
I have been back in our classroom planning all of the fun things we will do in first grade. We will learn all about addition and subtraction, read interesting books, play games, write and illustrate stories, learn about God, go on field trips, and much more! I am so excited to help you learn how to read this year. If you already know how to read a bit, you will become an even better reader.
In our class you will see some of your old friends from kindergarten and make new ones too. We have some friends who are new to WACS in our classroom too. Welcome!
Our open house is scheduled for Thursday, August 16th from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. I hope you will be able to come to school and see our classroom. Our classroom number is 106. If you are able to get your school supplies by this date, please bring them with you and we will put them away.
God’s blessings to you as you enjoy the last weeks of summer vacation.
