I have been teaching 1st Grade at Parkview Elementary for 5 years. I love teaching 1st Grade because I love working with these wonderful kids that are so full of life and excitement. It is amazing to have students in 1st Grade, and get to watch them grow up as they move through the grades at Parkview. My favorite holiday, especially when celebrating it at school, is Halloween. I enjoy dressing up and seeing all of the creative costumes. My favorite place to visit is Disneyland because I love the magic and happiness it exudes! I love to read fantasy books and Newbery Medal Books. A Wrinkle in Time, Bridge to Terabithia, and The Graveyard Book have been some of the most memorable books! As Dr. Seuss said, "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."
