• Welcome to First Grade!

    Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  I am excited to be your child's teacher!  This is my 12th year teaching after graduating from Purdue. I live in Hobart with my husband, three sons, and our beagle.  GO BRICKIES!  Our family loves to be outdoors!  Some of our favorite things to do are camping, baseball, and watching movies.  
    First grade is full of new learning adventures!  We will work hard to develop a love for learning that your child will take with them throughout their educational career.  Your child will have many wonderful experiences in the classroom.  He/She will master the Indiana Academic Standards by participating in a rigorous academic environment. I look forward to working, as a team, with you and your child.  I am here to help ensure your child has a successful year, please contact me with any questions you may have.
    As you can see, first grade is a BIG DEAL!  Through our partnership we will see your child's wonderful accomplishments and self-esteem grow!   I look forward to getting to know each and every family in our fourth grade community!
