Mrs. Singer's Class-Reading

Welcome to my class.

I am excited to teach you and get to know you. We are going to have a lot of fun.



My name is Nancy Singer. I have been a teacher for 25 years in Milwaukee, Montana, and Minnesota. I have had the pleasure of teaching both middle school and high school. Some of my favorite things to do are travel, read, ride horses, and spend time with my family. I am married to another teacher and have four boys.
