Mrs. Kristy Clark
I believe that all children can learn if given the right tools. Our classrooms will strive to be places where all children have the opportunity to show their individual strengths and build upon their unique differences. Learning should be fun, exciting, yet also challenging. If young children develop a love for learning at an early age, that love will continue to grow as they do.
In our classroom we use many different activities, technology, small group learning, exploring, and hands on projects to enrich every child’s educational experience. Children at this level will grow socially and academically through interactive play, small and whole group teaching. Education is a partnership between home, school, and community. Through working together, we can make 1st grade a positive and successful learning experience.
