Dear Families,

          I am so excited to have your child in my class.  First graders always learn so much, so fast.  I would like to tell you a little about myself. I have an Elementary Ed Degree from Wichita State Univerisity, as well as continual educational hours. I substitute taught in the Goddard School District prior to teaching at Apollo (and Amelia Earhart) the last ten years. I am happy to be at Apollo and I am thrilled to have your child in our first First Grade class here. I have taught and directed my church’s Parents Day Out Program while my own three daughters were younger.  I have volunteered in the Goddard Schools for many years.  I have been married for 30 years and our daughters are a Sophomore attending Kansas State, a Senior at Kansas State University with plans for OT masters and a 24 year old working as an English Teacher at East High School.

          I am looking forward to visiting with you when we can get together.  You are always welcome in the classroom and I would welcome any volunteer help.  Volunteering could be helping a student one-on-one or with a small group of students in a center project. You can come in on your schedule - daily, once a week, whatever would work best for you. I always have copying, stapling, sorting, and cutting.  I would appreciate any volunteer that would be interested in helping out in any capacity.

      If you would like to contact me please feel free to reach me by phone or email. I would be happy to visit with you or schedule a time that would be best for us to talk.  If I am busy with the class at the time of your message I will get back to you as soon as I can! The school email is checked throughout the day if you would like to reach me through computer. I review your student’s take home folder every morning during bellwork and you are welcome to communicate by note any day. I will respond back the same day.  

I am looking forward to a GREAT YEAR!
