I am Rianca Lovett and I have the honor of being your 1st grade teacher! I am super excited to begin this year full of first for all of us. But before it begins, why don't I tell you a little about myself. I was born and raised in a town right across the river called Alton, Il. I have been a STL resident for only 1 year, but have been teaching for 3. I am an elementary education graduate from SIUE, and am currently in school to obtain my master's in reading. My hobbies include reading, eating, and traveling the world. I adore all animals but african elephants have my heart. My birthday is in October so I love Halloween. I cannot wait to start this year together!
