About

Welcome to our class website

Welcome to First Grade!

I am excited to start a the 2017-2018 year in grade one with this fantastic group of students.

I am currently embarking on my ninth year of teaching.  I have taught at all grade levels from kindergarten through to grade twelve.  My focus has been on special needs and working as a instructional resource teacher in an inclusive classroom setting. I have a bachelors degree in primary/elementary education, a bachelors degree in special education and a masters degree in counselling psychology.   I take these many skills forth into the demands of our inclusive learning environment.

Teaching your child is a tremendous responsibly and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning environment.  This learning process will strongly transfer into home learning.  We are partners in this!

I believe that the guardian-teacher relationship is paramount for optimal learning success..  Throughout the year, I will communicate through my website, telephone, emails, report cards and guardian teacher conferences.  I strongly encourage you to check our website daily for any updates as well as contact me via email or call our school if you have any questions.

Warm regards,

Ms. Howard           IMG_6955.JPG
