First Grade Class

Welcome Back To School Carteret First Graders!

Dear Parents,

Welcome to one of the most incredible years your child will have in his/her school career! First grade is an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which acquisition of new skills is accelerated.

During first grade your child will learn how to read, write stories, add, subtract, and so much more. I hope to make each and every day fun and exciting and I hope to instill a love of learning that will last throughout your child's years of schooling.

So much happens in first grade! Because of this, parents as well as children may have some apprehension about what will happen. It is extremely important to keep in mind that we all build on small successes. Each child will progress at his/her own rate, acquiring skills as he/she is developmentally ready. Maintaining each child's self-esteem and building a secure foundation for future growth will always remain a priority in first grade. Celebrate your child's successes no matter how small it may seem. This will keep your child enthusiastic about learning and proud of their work! Read to and with your child every day! The more your child is exposed to language, the easier it will be for him/her to incorporate new skills in reading and writing in the classroom.

I am thrilled to be your child's teacher and will care and love them each day! Thank you in advance for your support this year! If you need to contact me please send an email to :
