Class Description

Every child has a voice in our class. In first grade, we are kind, friendly, and respectful towards each other. Students will receive a strong Catholic foundation to support their faith. I design, plan, and implement valuable instruction. Students participate in interactive learning centers, whole-group instruction, and independent work tasks. Through differentiated instruction and purposeful lessons, students will become independent, confident, life-long learners. We will use our creativity and knowledge to help the world be a better place.
