First Grade

I am Grateful

Posted by Eileen Faber, 1st grade teacher

I’m not only certified to teach First Grade, I have a K-12 English teaching endorsement. This summer when I renewed my certificate for the 6th time, I once again was told that I could take Joel Bratt’s job. 

Language and words have always been important to me.  I was the editor of the school paper in high school.  I’ve always liked to write.  Transformational grammar was my favorite college course.  I have to make sure my texts have the correct punctuation or I just don’t feel good about sending them.  We don’t write a lot in first grade, but we use lots of spoken language.  I hope that my first graders leave my classroom remembering many things that I have taught them: (Some of these are grammatically related; some are just my first grade bits of wisdom to live by.)
