Welcome to First Grade! I am so happy you are here!
This year we will learn SO many neat things and have fun while doing it!
I am from Niagara Falls, NY (actually a little town next to it called Wheatfield) and moved to Greensboro, NC when I began my undergrad at UNCG! I am currently continuing my education at UNCG and will graduate in May 2019 with my masters in reading education. I have spent the past 5 years teaching in Guilford County, and before that taught in Randolph. 3rd and 4th grade have always been near and dear to my heart, but I am so excited and grateful to be able to work with your 1st grader this school year!
Please don't ever hesitate to contact me! My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also keep up with our class over on our class Facebook page. Just search "Ms. Connell's First Grade 2018-2019" and request to join! On that page I post newsletters, reminders, live feed of the fun activities we are completing and academic tutorials so you can help your student practice skills at home. I look forward to working with you this year!
