Here's to a fabulous first grade year! First grade is a very dynamic year, lots of learning occurs, friendships blossom, and tons of fun happens!
A Bit About Baxter:
Baxter is a Social and Emotional Focus School. This means that we at Baxter focus not only on the academic aspect of a child's learning but also on the emotional one. Within my classroom I teach social and emotional skills as curriculum, just like I would math or reading. Every Monday for at least an hour we all work together in workshop format to learn and practice skills that not only help us be successful socially but also has been proven to make dramatic positive impact upon academic achievement.
A Bit About Me:
I am a lifelong Alaskan with the quick exception of a couple of years Outside for school. I have my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and my master's degree in Literacy so I am eager to be reading and writing with all my kiddos.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments, feedback from parents is invaluable!
