Dear First Grade Friends,


    My name is Mrs. Colleen Downer and I’m going to be your teacher  . I am very excited about sharing with you the stories, games   , and learning activities I have planned! In first grade, we will have a lot of fun, develop a LOVE for reading , become excellent writers  and make new   friends.

    I can’t wait to get to know YOU better and I am sure you are eager to know a little bit about me too! I have taught both fourth and fifth grade but don’t tell anyone because I love teaching   grade the best! Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, walking in the park, reading and travelling to new and exciting places.


                First Grade is a magical year!


    Mrs. Downer
