Welcome to first grade! My name is Jennifer LaBau and I am from a small Yakima Valley town in Washington. After graduating from Gonzaga University with dual certificates in Elementary Education and Special Education in 2001, I taught for a year in an elementary school in Spokane, WA. I had wanted to live in Coeur d'Alene after visiting the area in college, so I moved over here and started teaching at the middle school level. First grade was always my love, so after seven years of middle school I moved down to first grade and have been teaching it ever since!
Coeur d'Alene is now my forever home because I love the outdoor opportunities this area provides! My husband, daughter, and I love to go camping, ATV-ing and hiking. I also love reading, crafting and Pinterest perusing!
We have so much to learn during the year; how to be readers or a stronger reader, how to think mathematically, and how to work in a classroom and school. And SO much more!
