Hello,

Welcome to first grade at Lattie Coor School. I am looking forward to being your child’s first-grade teacher for the school year 2018-2019. I have a BA in Early Childhood Education with a Reading Endorsement and a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education from Northern Arizona University.


I'm thrilled about all the exciting learning for this school year!
I have a strong passion for teaching and one of my goals is to create a passion in your child for learning. Communication is very important to me as it is the pathway for parents and I having an understanding of expectations and events occurring during the school year.
Please sign the behavior chart every day.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
 We’ll work together to make your child’s first-grade year a terrific one. 

First grade is a year filled with fun and huge leaps in learning. First graders develop fundamental work habits, appropriate social behavior, problem-solving and decision making skills and of course academic skills. 

Here are some links to what we will be working on this school year:

For many children, this is the first time that they will be away from home all day.  Be prepared for your little one to come home tired at the beginning of the school year. 

It takes them a little while to adjust to their new schedule, but soon they will love first grade as I do. 

I will do my best to get your child home safely each day.  If your child is going home a different way than they usually do, please let me know ASAP. 

Please see our suggested first grade supply list for this school year!

Looking forward to meeting both students and parents on Meet the Teacher Night

Thursday, August 2, 2018  from 5:30-7:00p.m.
