Welcome to First Grade!
I am so excited to have your child in my class this year! I love first grade and the growth that I get to see at the end of every year. When you enter into my classroom there is a sign that says "Every Day is a New Adventure". In first grade that saying is so true. Every day I get to teach your child something new and then in turn they teach me something new too. This can be an interesting fact or even something about myself that helps me to become a better teacher.
I look forward to a whole year of new adventures and I thank you for sharing your child with me !
