Dear First Grade Families,

        Welcome to Whittier Elementary and the wonderful world of First Grade! I feel very fortunate to be teaching at such an amazing school with wonderful families. My goal is to provide students with a positive, safe and protective learning environment that fosters positive self-esteem, concern for others, responsibility, a broad knowledge base, and proficiency in basic skills and a true love for learning. I too am a parent and understand the worry and concern that comes with putting your child in another person’s care. Please rest assured that I plan to love your child to pieces and will care for him/her as I would my own while he/she is in my care.
