Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to first grade! My name is Ms. McCullough and I am pleased to be your child's teacher this coming school year. This is my 2nd year teaching here at MOES. I earned my B.S. in Elementary-Education, from UCF, with an endorsement in Reading and ESOL. I'm currently working on obtaining a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I can't wait for us to begin our journey together!
First grade is a year full of transitions. As the year progresses, you will see your child gain both responsibility and independence as a member of a challenging, exciting, and motivating learning environment. I hope our class will be a place where your child feels comfortably challenged and where he or she will find the motivation to strive towards personal excellence. I always strive to nurture a caring and loving classroom where we can celebrate our achievements, support one another’s emotional needs and encourage one another towards positive change. I find this type of environment to be so important to learning, and I sincerely hope that our class will be a place your child will look forward to coming to each day. I love teaching and I will do everything I can to make sure your child succeeds!
Support and interest from parents is a key element of student success. We are a team! I want to make sure that together we are always making the best decision for your child. I will keep the lines of communication open with frequent notes, e-mails, and phone calls. I would love for you to do the same! Please don't ever hesitate to contact me for any reason.
