First Grade with Mrs. House
MRS HOUSE'S FIRST GRADE
Welcome to Room 24. I have now been teaching in McKinleyville Schools for over ten years. My own two children attended McKinleyville schools and are currently at Mckinleyville High school. I am so happy to share this year with you and your child. First grade is a remarkable grade to teach. First graders are brimming with enthusiasm and a thirst for learning. Every year I am amazed by the growth of my students from the time they walk in the door in August to the last day of school in June. For many students this will be the year that they become fluent readers thereby unlocking a whole new world of exploration, learning and pleasure. Becoming a reader is arguably the single most important skill a person can learn and I feel so lucky that I get to be a part of that for so many McKinleyville children.
