class hello

 Dear First Grade Student, 

     I am extremely excited to be your teacher this year! Wow! Can you believe you are a first grader? In my opinion, first grade is the best! We are going to have so much fun and learn so many new things. We will experiment, explore, create and invent. We will learn our math facts and become stronger readers and writers. We play fun learning games, have great centers, take brain breaks and even have our own movie stage. Everyone will be able to sit in many different areas of the classroom. We have stability balls, rug cushions, lap desks  stools  We will make sure you are comfortable and ready to learn!  Don't forget you will have your own locker too.  Our classroom looks great! Everything is done; I’m just waiting for YOU!
     You might be wondering who I am, so let me share a little about me. My name is Mrs. Masiello and I have been teaching first grade for 18 years. I know, that’s a long time!!!! I have a daughter, Makenzie. She just graduated and will also be a teacher. Makenzie is getting married this October and I am very excited.   My sons name is Zachary.  He attends Southern Maine College.   His dream is to be a camera operator for sporting events. He will do this because WE ALL can do whatever we want if we believe in ourselves and work hard.   My husband’s name is David and my dog is named Tyson. 
     I have been waiting all summer to meet you! I look forward to hearing all about your vacation. I will tell you all about mine.  Please take a look at our supply list.   You can bring them for our Meet and Greet and place them in the labeled boxes.  

See you soon! Enjoy the rest of your summer.
Mrs. Masiello
