Hi and welcome to my class! I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach your child this year. This is my 18th year of teaching, which is also my 18th year at Ft. McCoy, there is no better school in Marion County than "the Fort". Mrs. Emrich and I have been team teaching for 14 of my 20 years, we find that this way of educating children is very effective. We have team taught K, 1, and 2, we've also team taught 1st and 2nd grades, this year we will be teaching just 1st grade. I am responsible for teaching both classes math and science. Mrs. Emrich is responsible for reading and social studies for both classes. The district has made many changes this year, including the new reading series. Parents are encouraged to read with their child for 20 minutes each night and to complete the homework sent home. Please call or email if there is a problem.
I am looking forward to a great 2017-2019 school year with your student!
