About Me

Welcome to our class newsletter!


I am so excited to have your child in my class this year, I know we will have a fantastic year full of learning, excitement and fun! This is my first year teaching and I am looking forward to a year of adventure with your child! I went to the University of Houston and have my degree in Early Childhood Education! I enjoy reading, running and cooking! In this newsletter, you will find announcements that will keep you up to date on projects, homework and tests! I will also post what amazing work your children have done throughout the week! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have in regards to our newsletter!

What Are We Up To?

In this section, you will find our work throughout the week. We will be working on many different projects, assignments and hands-on activities during the year that will be displayed in this section! I hope you enjoy looking through and seeing all the fun we are having in the classroom! :)

Star Student of the Week!

I am so pleased to announce that our first Star Student of the year is Josephine! She has been such a great help this week, not only to me but to her fellow classmates as well! She has shown so much pride, dignity and responsibility in every decision this week! She has been such a joy to have in class!

A Few Classroom Reminders:

  • I will send home new spelling lists every Monday, they can be found in your child's homework folder.
  • There will also be homework with designated days to be completed in your child's homework folder - each week the entire packet is due Friday. I will return the packet the following week.
  • We will have spelling tests over the list I sent home every THURSDAY.
  • We are planning a few field trips this year! This page will keep you updated on the trip and dates/time of our field trip


Parents- we are having a parent read aloud every Friday throughout the month of November. Volunteers are needed!!

Show And Tell!

I'm so excited to announce that we will be doing Show And Tell everyday Friday morning. Please keep in mind that your child is to bring something that corresponds with the lesson of the week - we are learning to make connections! It is imperative that each child brings something to share with the class so that we can learn to be comfortable sharing aloud with one another! I look forward to our first Show And Tell this Friday, August 25, 2015!
