First Grade with

Mrs. Burns

Class overview

First grade is a year to continue to build on the foundations that each come in to the classroom with. It is a year to continue to grasps the needed skills to find a like of reading, expand writing abilities to use as a way to further express ourselves and build ability to manipulate numbers to show understanding of placement and value in 2 and 3 digit numbers along with adding and subtracting. Building skills of explorations of sun and time of day it brings, comparing and contrasting young animals to their adults as well has building understanding of jobs, traditions, and symbols of our communities.

About me

As I am new to Eagle Ridge, I am not new to teaching in Douglas County. This year I will be starting my 24th year in this county. When I can I like to go for walks, read, kayak, hiking (in the cooler seasons) and spend time with family friends.

I recently started to settle in the Highlands Ranch Area, having lived in Parker for the past 20 years. I am supported by my wonderful husband, Gary, who works as a technician in the Traffic Signal industry. Our 3 children, all graduates from Douglas County, are young adults building life pathways in Tennessee (teaching), New Mexico (building family with 2 grandchildren) and Alaska (stationed there by the Army)

I am looking forward to the year ahead building a learning place that allows for all to grow in their skills and building of relationships.
