We had an amazing first day this year as we work to Cultivate a Community of Excellence! Our principal, Mrs. Phillips, had some awesome surprises for us that aligned perfectly with our theme for this school year. We started out the day by interacting with farm animals. Then, we learned all about bees and their homes and how they help plants grow. Next, we planted seeds so we too can be farmers and each have a plant of our own. Because it was pretty hot outside, we took a break to have some fun and rolled watermelons in the field and then enjoyed a slice of the refreshing treat! Finally, we had a REAL farmer teach us a song and read a story to the entire first grade! It was a day we will never forget :)
I am beginning my 14th year of teaching at Chets Creek. I feel very blessed to be able to work so closely with my students and their families. I pride myself on giving 110% to my students and 110% to my family each day. My husband Hector and I have three terrific kids. Shalyn is beginning Second Grade this year and she is so excited! Canyon is an almost 5 year old who is full of life and energy! Marissa is also turning 5 soon and is a girly girl who loves to play and laugh. We love to spend time with family and friends, go to Gator Football games, and do other outside activities. We love to stay busy and live life to the fullest!
