Ms. Lindsay Digar - First Grade

Hello and Welcome to Ms. Digar's first grade clasroom! 

This is my fourth year with first grade here at Washington Montessori!  Go Pandas!! I love teaching and learning and can't wait to build a family of learners with our incoming students.  We believe in care and respect and first grade always works as a team. We are going to have so much fun and learn so much this year!! :) 

I am born and raised in St. Louis and am proud to be at SLPS.  I received my Associates degree in the art of teaching at St. Louis Community College - Florissant Valley (2009).  I received my Bachelors degree in the science of teaching at University of Missouri- St. Louis (2013).  I went on to receive my Masters degree in Character and Citzenship Education at University of Missouri St. Louis (2016). I am currently continuing my education at UMSL in the graduate program. 

I am proud to be a teacher and my passion for learning is always growing! When I am not teaching I am playing with my 11 year old niece Kinlee Kruiz (we call her KK), or with my little dog August (we call him Auggie). I coach basketball and softball, I like to fish and be in nature, and I like to listen to music when I work. I also enjoy listening and watching hockey...Lets Go Blues! I love to eat tacos!  I also love pickles!  I eat ramen noodle all the time! :) 

I am excited for this school year and I hope that my families and students are too!  Let's go first grade!
