Mrs. Nicole DeVries
Hello First Grade Scholars!
My name is Mrs. DeVries (sounds a little like the air freshener Febreeze, except with a D and a V). I will be your 1st grade teacher this year. I am looking forward to growing our reading and writing skills! We will also become fluent in addition and subtraction to 10, and learn a lot about science.
This will be my second year teaching first grade at Mullanphy. I am working on my Masters in Teaching and Learning. I live here in St. Louis with my husband, Andy, and our four fur kiddos - Luke, Ethel, Jam, and Queso. By the time the summer is over, we will be adding IDENTICAL TWIN BOYS to our family! I am due at the end of July. We are so excited!
First quarter will look a little different this year. I will be out on maternity leave until the end of first quarter. You will have some amazing substitutes helping you learn everything you need to know at the beginning of the year!
Some of you might remember using TEAMs during virtual learning days. While we will be in person this year, we will maintain a TEAMs page in case of inclement weather or if a virtual day is needed for any reason. I will post assignments here on those days only.
