Welcome To First Grade in Room 112!

Welcome to the 2018 - 2019 school year!  I am excited to be working with your child in first grade this year.  This is my 28th year teaching overall and my 25th year teaching first grade at Hawthorne Elementary.  My favorite part about teaching first grade is the incredible amount of growth I see within each child from the beginning of the year to the end.  Here's to a wonderful year of growing!
