My name is Miss Katie Stevenson and I will be your child’s 1st grade English teacher this year. During Fall of 2016 I completed my student teaching at Global Village Academy in Erin Llyod’s 2nd grade class. In December I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in English as a Second Language.
This will be my first full year teaching, but I gained experience as a substitute teacher for Global Village Academy from the beginning of March 2017 to the end of the school year. I believe in this school’s mission statement, and I am glad that I work for an extraordinary school.
Your students will be learning many different subjects in my classroom throughout this year. I will be working to help your students become stronger readers, develop their reading comprehension, expand their vocabulary, and increase their phonics and word recognition.
In social studies your students will be learning about civics, geography, history, and economics. The final subject we will be covering is science! I LOVE science because we will be completing hands on projects and experiments. The topics of study will be sound waves and light waves, space and systems, and life science. I have three goals for the 1st grade class this year; the first goal is for the students to learn while being engaged and having fun. Next, I will guide the students to develop a love of reading. Finally, I will inspire the students to be seekers of knowledge. I am very excited to work with you and your student. We will make it an excellent year!
