I am currently teaching grade one at A. L. Horton. I have had the privilege to job share with Kelsey the past 4 years and am now back working full time. I have been with Elk Island Public Schools since January of 2004. I started at Pleasant Ridge Colony and worked there for 3 and a half years. Then started here at A. L. as a grade 5 teacher. I have been off on two maternity leaves since then and have spent most of my years here teaching either grade 1, 2 or ½ splits.
In grade one we spend a majority of our time focussing on numeracy and literacy as they are the building blocks for a successful education.
