Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year and 1st grade!  I am honored to have the privilege of working with you and your child.  It is my hope that all is well with each of you and your family.  These are uncharted times and I understand everyone’s anxiety and uncertainty. I know that the path we have taken to ensure that our children continue to be educated is inconvenient and difficult. However,  without your support, patience, and understanding this undertaking would be impossible.  I truly appreciate all that you are doing and will continue to do to assist your child(ren)---our students--with their educational journey.

This is an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which acquisition of new skills is accelerated. Therefore, it is extremely important to keep in mind that we all build on small successes. Each child will progress at his/her own rate, acquiring skills as he/she is developmentally ready. Maintaining each child's self-esteem and building a secure foundation for future growth will always remain a priority in our class.   If you have concerns about anything, please write me a note, set an appointment for a conference, or call me at 843-489-8845.  You may also communicate with me on Class Tag.  I believe in maintaining an open door policy with my students’ parents.  Once again, I look forward to teaching your child and working with you to help him/her achieve his/her fullest potential. Thank you for the support and cooperation that you will provide during this school term.
