Welcome to 1st grade! I am excited to be teaching your child this year! This is my 8th year of teaching and my 2nd year here at Walsh! I am so pumped to be a Bearcat! I grew up in Fort Worth and attended UNT on a soccer scholarship. I played there for 2 years before transferring to ASU to finish out my career there. After graduating with my teaching degree, I moved back to the area and began teaching.
Welcome to one of the most incredible years your child will have in his/her school career. First grade is an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which acquisition of new skills is accelerated. First graders develop fundamental work habits, appropriate social behavior, problem solving, decision making, and of course, academic skills. It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students. Open communication between you and I is important, as we are a team dedicated to the success of your child.
