Hello and welcome to first grade. It is hard to believe that this is my 40th year at Lee Road School. I have enjoyed teaching both first and second grades at our school.
Yes, I have taught children and their children. It is amazing to watch the kindergarteners enter my class and then leave ready for second grade!
I enjoy learning along with my students ; they always share interesting stories as well as information.
I graduated from McNeese State University with a bachelor's degree with four certifications. I recieved my Master's degree from Southeastern University.
I have participated in many extra education classes, workshops, and seminars while at Lee Road.
I look forward to working with you and your child this year. Please know that my door is always open for questions and concerns.
For the first and second nine weeks we will concentrate on sounds, letter decoding, identifying parts to make complete sentences, using punctuation and discussing story parts.
Weekly stories will be sent home in a Reading Folder and should be reviewed daily. The children will develop Story Maps to aid in writing composition.
Our homework assignments will reflect daily and weekly lessons.
