Welcome to First Grade!


(If you are here following a link from the third-grade website, I am hoping they will change that soon. The link should be from the first grade team!)



Here's a few things about me, in case you were interested:


1. I have 3 daughters and 3 dogs. The daughters are quite wonderful. The dogs are a little bit naughty. Jimmy is the naughtiest. He will eat anything he can get his paws on. He leaves a mess just about everywhere. Daisy and Henry, the other dogs, have better manners. 


2.  I sometimes dress as the StoryQueen and tell stories.








3. I am married, but my husband is not really a king. And I don't really live in a castle, but I probably could build a castle out of the books that I have.


4.  Speaking of books, I write them. I have written 12 books for children with 3 more on the way (2016, 2018, and 2019). Sometimes I write about what it is like to be a teacher and a writer here.  Or, you can read about my books themselves here.


This book was dedicated to the students of Jefferson!!!

And this book just won the CELI (Center for Excellence in Literacy Instruction) Read Aloud Book Award for 2017!


5.  I never eat cereal for breakfast. That is because when I was little, I ate cereal for breakfast every single school day. That was 12 years, (13 if you count kindergarten, which I do), 180 school days each year. If you do the math, 180 x 13 = 2,340 bowls of cereal, which is quite a lot for anyone in a life time. 


6.  I love reading about places far away. I love to read before I go to bed. Bed is my favorite place to read.


7.  I run every day. I do not run far and I do not run fast, but I do drag myself out of bed each morning and have a little bit of a jog before school each day. It helps my brain get ready for the day.


8. I love Star Wars. I own three pairs of Star Wars shoes. Seriously.


Looking forward to meeting all of you in person soon!


Read on!
