1st Grade Teacher
Welcome to First Grade! I am so excited to begin this school year with your child. I have been a teacher for 12 years, with the last five years teaching first grade at Pleasant Prairie Elementary. Prior to achieving my teaching certification I was an educational assistant with Kenosha Unified.
I am married to Joe and we have three daughters - Abbie, Lizzie, and JoHanna. Abbie is a teacher in Racine, Lizzie operates LHuck Interiors, and JoHanna is a flight attendant.
My goal for teaching your child this school year is to have them become independent learners. I want them to feel that they are an important member of my classroom and we are a classroom family. Reading and writing will be our main focus. We will also work on developing responsibility, being respectful, and being safe - three of PPE's school-wide character goals. I like to have a structured classroom but I also like to incorporate fun into our learning.
I look forward to working with you this school year!
I was able to get a few pictures during recess time. It was difficult to get the children to slow down long enough for me to snap the picture! Anisa, Connor, Tomek, Valeria, and Kaylani
