Welcome 1st Grade Sharks! My name is Mrs. Easland and I will be your teacher. This is going to be an exciting year with lots to explore, experience and learn. I hope to be a guide and mentor to you as we embark on this academic journey filled with excitement, challenges and many learning opportunities.
I am beginning my 19th year as a teacher and I am thrilled to be in 1st grade. I have taught every grade level Kindergarten through 8th grade except 4th and 6th. While all grade levels have been fun and exciting, my heart really lies in 1st grade. I LOVE teaching my students to read and watching the excitement that lights up the room when new learning has occurred.
I am married to Mr. Easland, he teaches at Harloe, and we are the proud parents of 2 beautiful girls. My oldest daughter Emily is attending Hancock this year and loves to swim. My youngest daughter Keira is a Sophmore at AGHS and loves to play basketball. I also have a dog named Lyle and a cat named Leo.
As we begin our 1st grade adventure, I would like us all to work as a team and support each other through open communication. I can be reached via email or with a note in your child's homework folder. Please reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or compliments.
