    Welcome to My First Grade Classroom

    Welcome to Mrs. Allen's Terrific Turtles first grade class!!
    My name is Teresa Allen and I will be your child's teacher this year. This will be my 25th year in education and my 6th in first grade.
    I graduated from UNC Charlotte with my degree in Elementary Education.

    Educational Philosophy/Vision:
    All children are special, all children have the ability to learn. It is up to us as the adults in their life to nurture that love of learning.
                                   
      We have made it to the end of the year. It has been an awesome year!! I have enjoyed getting to know and teach your children and will miss them over the summer. 

      I am sending home a summer pack for your child to work on during the summer. This will help your child not have the "summer slide" and be ready for next year. 

      I highly recommend the summer library program. It is a fun way to keep your child reading over the summer. They also have fun activities for you and your child to do. 

      Most of all have a wonderful summer with your child!!
