About Me

Hello! I am a first grade teacher at Skillin Elementary School. For the past 20 years, I have been lucky enough to teach children from preschool through fourth grade. Sharing learning and growth in an engaging, fun way is an incredible way to spend my day! First grade is a magical time where children become amazing readers, writers, mathematicians, friends, great thinkers and so much more!

Balancing family life and school is tricky!  It is important for kids to develop a homework routine, practice what they have learned and show you what they can do.  But, every day brings different schedules and different kids need different things.  Here is a homework plan that you can personalize for your family’s needs.

  • Reading is crucial to developing readers!  Please spend 15 minutes several times a week either reading with your child or encouraging them to read on their own.  

  • Periodically, your child will come home with a new word list to practice.  On the back there will be ideas for fun and engaging ways to practice the words.

  • Each week, I will send home math practice pages and/or games for you to play at home.  Pick and choose what works for you!

On our class blog, you will find links to several great sites that your students might enjoy using as a part of their homework.  Check them out!

RAZ Kids info:  Information will be sent home on Monday and emailed to you.

Each time your child reads, practices words or completes math work, have them color in a picture.  The goal is to complete 2-4 of each area each week.   Please return the homework page each Monday so your child can show all their hard work!

Keep in mind that your children work really hard all day long at school.  It is important for them to have time to be outdoors, build, create, explore and relax at home!  If homework becomes a challenge in any way for your child, let me know so we can come up with a plan.

As always, contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
