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 13 years, with the last six 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 and I 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 is to have them become independent learners. I want them to feel that they are an important member of my team 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.
This school year I will be incorporating many strategies used with Whole Brain Teaching that keeps children engaged throughout our lessons, and helps them retain much more information. We will be a very interactive classroom with the children teaching chunks of information to their partners.
I look forward to working with you this school year!
Mrs. HuckDon't hesitate to email me with any questions or concerns you may have.
The children had fun this week creating an "animal" and using "structures" so the animal can defend itself.
