Grade One

Mrs. Nickerson

As you can tell one of the greatest days of our lives happened this summer. My daughter got married! I thought I would share my joy!

I live in Holden with my husband Andy. We have two awesome daughters Holly and Meg. Holly is an Occupational Therapist who just got married to our new son in law Brett Dyer. Meg is a kindergarten teacher in Bangor at the Fruit Street School. All of us share lots of ideas for the classroom. I have two grand puppies. A big chocolate lab Huckleberry and a brand new red fox lab named Bodie. Love them! You will soon find out I love animals. I love to be outside, love reading, love spending time with my family! I am also a fitness instructor and teach two different classes. Health is so important to me.

This year I will begin my 23rd year at the Dedham School as a First Grade teacher. The greatest job in the world. When your child is in my classroom they become one of my own. They will be treated like family and with the upmost respect, so let's do this!

The focus in First Grade is to become the best reader and writers possible with lots of help from you parents. Grade One has a program called Wrtiting to Read. It happens everyday for one hour where your child will learn at their own individual level and pace. We will take them as high as they want to go. They will receive daily one on one teaching. I will be asking for volunteers for this program so if you are interested please contact me at jnickeson@dedhamschool.net!

I will be sending a letter full of information and a shopping list. Be looking for that the first week of August.
