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!
