Dear Families,

I hope you are enjoying a restful summer.  If you are visiting this page, you've probably learned that I will be your child's teacher and I have learned that your child will be my student.  I look forward to meeting you soon and getting to know more about you and your first grader over the coming months.  I am prepared for a year filled with many successes and plan to build those successes in partnership with you.  

I will be out on maternity leave starting sometime in September and plan to return after the New Year. Mr. Morris and I have worked hard to find a substitute to keep the momentum of our class going while I am away. In addition, Mrs. Gilbert will know all our classroom routines and expectations and will be able to help reduce in any confusion when the substitute and I transition.

The students in our classroom will begin the year building a strong foundation for our classroom community, while defining individual hopes and dreams through a parallel, complimentary process.  I anticipate working closely with you to support your first grader as these goals are accomplished.  In addition, I want you to know that it is both my personal and professional goal to ensure that your child feels a sense of belonging, significance, and fun in my classroom.  In other words: your child will be missed when they are not present; your child's individuality and contributions are important and valuable; and our classroom will be fun, even through our most difficult challenges.  

I welcome you to be in touch often as we share a wonderful first grade experience at Memorial-Spaulding!
