Welcome to the new school year! I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the new families joining us this year and a big welcome back to the returning ones! My name is Mrs. Book, and I am so excited to be your 1st grade teacher this year! I have been at Shaw VPA for 15 years and I consider the staff and students as part of my family. We are going to do so many fun things and of course, we will learn a lot. We will be working together as we begin this educational journey and I plan to help your child succeed to reach their highest goals this year. I hope you had a fabulous summer, and I can't wait to hear about it!
Dear Students,My wish for you is that you see the light in this world, in yourself, and in others. I see the light in you. Compliment others and be proud of your own accomplishments. I am proud of you. I believe in you. Try hard, and trust that others will help you. I will help you. Fill your heart with laughter and smiles. I love to see your smile. You are unique, special, and an amazing person. There will never be another you. I appreciate you.
Dream, believe, wonder, inspire, love, nurture and always listen. That is what I will do for you.
First Grade Teacher
