A couple of weeks ago, we took Jonah to meet his 1st grade teacher. We took her a coffee mug with a Starbucks gift card inside. The note said "Looking forward to a great year with you. I'm guessing you will need a "Latte" of caffeine!" I totally stole this idea from my friend Malinda. And, by a total fluke, she loves zebra print. Good to know!
We went to the Multi-purpose room to find out his teacher and location of his classroom. He was very happy to see Savannah. He has always liked her.
We were thrilled again this year to discover that Jonah had a wonderful teacher. She comes with RAVE reviews from former students.
I was immediately shocked to discover how "grown up" his classroom is compared to last year. There are no toys and not as many bright colors. It is much more a "learning" environment than a fun and vibrant room. And, there are desks rather than tables.
When Jonah was handed his room/teacher assignment, Mr. Whitaker said "Oh, you got Mrs. Hoover. She LOVES science. You will have so much fun!" He still talks about that. He is so excited about the potential of fun science experiments.
His buddy, Rylan Carlos is in the classroom across the hall from him. They get to see each other periodically throughout the day.
And, here she is...Jonah's first grade teacher, Mrs. Hoover. We love her already!
As we were leaving, we ran into Deanna. She is in a different class than Jonah but they are still big buddies. We all love her. She is a sweet girl.
The two of them together walked into their classroom from last year to see their teacher, Mrs. Myers. She was WONDERFUL and we will miss her tons. But, part of growing up is moving on. So, we are...moving right on into First grade!
