Hello and welcome to the start of a fabulous school year! I am thrilled to be a part of the Western Avenue community and even more excited to continue teaching first grade! For a little background about me, I am a St. Charles native and am an alumni of St. Charles East High School. I attended the University of Northern Colorado where I obtained a BA in Elementary Teaching. After graduation, I spent the following two years teaching 2nd grade in Windsor, Colorado. After moving back home to be closer to family and friends, I spent my first year at Western Avenue School teaching Kindergarten in 2016. The following school year, I had the opprotunity to "loop up" to 1st grade with my Kindergarten class for my first year as a first grade teacher. This 2018-2019 school year will be my 2nd year as a first grade teacher and my 5th year as an educator.
I am excited and eager to get to know your student and work with her or him closely. I believe that teamwork and open communication are very important in any working classroom. I know that together we will ensure a positive and productive learning experience for your first grader. I am looking forward to working with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.
I look forward to a wonderful school year with you and your child!
All the best,
Ms. Bethany Carrignan
