My First Grade Friends!WELCOME TO FIRST GRADE AT ATLAS ELEMENTARY! I am looking forward to an enjoyable and productive year with your first grader. I love teaching and I am excited about this year. I feel very fortunate to be able to work with your child. I have been teaching first grade for many years and have been lucky enough that all those years have been in the Coeur d'Alene School District! I graduated from the University of Idaho twice. Go Vandals! I love learning, too!My husband, Mike, and I love our growing family: 5 kids, 2 son-in-laws, 1 daughter-in-law and 3 grandson. Besides spending time with my family, I enjoy refinishing old wood furniture and making it beautiful and useful again. I enjoy baking. I love to read. In the summer I like to camp and spend time skiing on the lake and in the winter I like to ski the slopes. I love North Idaho and the beauty and recreation that this area offers.
I know the excitement that learning can bring and I have plenty of fun learning activities planned. I love teaching children and feel a great amount of responsibility for each child that I come in contact with. Atlas is a fabulous learning community and YOU are part of it!Students enrolled after September 5I would really appreciate it if you could click on the link below and fill out this form prior to your child coming to class.
