Teaching Philosophy

     First Grade is an exciting and dynamic journey filled with learning.  This year, the First Grade Teachers hope to bring to your children a passion for learning.  Beyond teaching learners the academics, we wish to teach learners persistence and perseverance so that they have the tools to tackle all of life's challenges.  We want students to learn that hard work will help them to achieve their goals and enthusiasm makes all the work fun.
