Welcome to our classroom at Sumpter Elementary. Each child that enters my door is a gift to me and the rest of my students. We encourage friendships, team work and respect. This will be my seventh year at Sumpter. I have taught for over 25 years at all grade levels from K-8th grade. Each grade level has it's unique challenges and opportunities. First grade is such a wonderful year for my students to grow and learn independently and as a team, they are so eager to learn and I am eager to teach them. So welcome to my first grade classroom. Below are some pictures of my family and where we live. My husband and I have been married for 29 years and we have two boys in college who are 18 and 21. You might like to know that they think I am never going to make it out of the first grade:)
We live out in the rural area surrounded by 40 acres of fields that grow grass seed. This has been a wonderful place to raise our boys and find wonderful critters and other items to bring to my first grade classroom.
