Welcome to a fun year in Room 104! This is my 11th year teaching first grade in the Falls. Previously I taught first grade in Las Vegas, Nevada. This year will be my 4th exciting adventure of job sharing with Krista Traucht! Mrs. Traucht taught kindergarten at Ben Franklin for six years, and moved up in the world as she joined me in first grade. :) We are both thrilled to have the opportunity to spend extra time with our little ones at home while maintaining our careers that we are so passionate about.
First grade is a year of tremendous growth, and it's so exciting for me to be a part of that in your child's life. This year they will blossom as readers and writers, and become much more independent learners. It is amazing to watch their transformation from the beginning of the year to the end! I know you will find this journey just as rewarding as I do. I look forward to helping your son or daughter achieve their highest potential.
