Welcome to First Grade!!!
Hello! Welcome to Fabulous First Grade! My name is Mrs. Todd and I am excited for another year in First Grade!!
This year is going to be an amazing adventure while we have fun learning and growing together. I am thrilled to be your teacher!! You won’t believe how much FUN we will have along the way.
I think it is very important for us to work together as a family. We will be spending a lot of time together this year and will treat each other with respect, kindness and compassion. I know that each of you have a different brain. That means that you think and learn differently. It is my job as a teacher to help you grow as a learner.
I am excited to learn all about you, but first I will tell alittle about myself. I have lived in North Carolina for 21 years. I have taught kindergarten and first grade here at McGee’s. I am married and have two amazing children. Sara is 13 and is in middle school. Sara is a softball player. Seth is 9 and going into fourth grade. Seth has started playing travel soccer this year. My kids keep me very busy at the ball field each evening! We have three crazy dogs. I will be telling you lots of funny stories about my kids and dogs this year.
Here are a few of my favorite things:
Color: Teal & Brown
Food: Italian (lasagna,pizza, pasta)
Author: Jan Brett, Karen Kingsbury
We will be developing a GROWTH MINDSET this year. **Please think of three things you CAN do and one thing you can not do YET.
