Welcome to our classroom. My name is Lisa Withrow and I am excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your children this year. I grew up in New Jersey, received my BA degree in Elementary Education from West Virginia Wesleyan College and my Masters Degree from Marygrove College. I first began teaching at Holy Family School in 2001.
First grade is a year of tremendous academic growth and fun! About every two weeks or so, I will introduce a new theme in our classroom. Most of our activities will be related to this theme. I feel children learn best when the subjects and material taught is integrated.
I encourage parent involvement in my classroom, and feel your child benefits when you are involved.
Finally I want you to know that my goal this year is to establish a firm foundation for lifelong learning by recognizing the differences among children and providing motivating and engaging lessons to help each child grow into a confident, independent, and spiritual individual.
