1st Grade Team

Welcome First Grade, Wildcats!
 I am so excited to start another amazing year at MAC! This is my 8th year teaching. I am a graduate of Southeastern University where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with an ESOL and reading endorsement. I have a passion for learning and teaching and it gives me great joy to be able to inspire students to feel the same way when coming to school! I am committed to creating a classroom environment where students feel loved, valued, trusted, and understand they are an integral part of our family of learners.  Each day learning will be challenging, fun, positive, and engaging. With the combined effort of student, parent, and teacher I am confident that this will be a year of growth and success! 


Students should read each night for 20 minutes.  Please list the book that was read on the reading log that is in your child's Monday folder.
