First grade teacher

I am very excited to be your child's first grade teacher! As a mother , my main goal is to create a warm and nurturing classroom environment where children feel safe, cared for, and appreciated. By accomplishing this goal, I firmly believe that children will then feel comfortable to soar academically, emotionally, and socially. My daughter had a fantastic first grade experience in which I witnessed her grow by leaps and bounds. I feel privileged to be your child's first grade teacher and promise to be the teacher that I would want my own child to have stand before them every day.
This is my 20th year teaching in the Belleville school system and enjoy my teaching career very much. I am looking forward to a wonderful year.
