Welcome to First Grade at Painted Sky Elementary! We have an exciting year ahead of us and I am thrilled to be working with you and your child this year. Every child has something unique and special that he or she brings to their education. When we celebrate our differences and our experiences, the classroom becomes a beautifully unique environment where learning, exploring, creativity, communication, and critical thinking take place.
One of my roles as an educator is to guide my students to various learning outcomes, provide access to information and hands-on experiences that allow students to construct knowledge, and to play an active role in helping them understand just how capable and amazing they are! As an educator, I hope to help my students gain a life-long love of learning, a thirst for knowledge, and a solid understanding that taking risks and making mistakes is all part of the learning process.
I believe that communication between school and home is crucial for student success. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
