Mrs. Grefe’s First Grade Class
I am pleased to welcome you and your child to first grade at Cottonwood Canyon Elementary. This year promises to be exciting and rewarding as your child develops reading, writing, listening, speaking, and math skills through a variety of learning experiences and activities. I believe that every child has the potential to learn and be successful. Our classroom will be a place where children are nurtured as individuals and encouraged to excel to their individual potential. It is also important for children to acquire the social skills that will enable them to be productive people in the larger world beyond school. To this end, our classroom will provide children with opportunities to excel independently and cooperatively. Finally, our classroom will exemplify positive character and academic achievement in a creative and engaging environment where children learn to believe in themselves and trust those around them.
I have been teaching 1st grade at Cottonwood Canyon Elementary since it first opened in 2002. I have a degree in Business Finance from California State Fullerton and completed both my Masters Degree and Teaching Credential at San Marcos. I love what I do and love coming to work each and every day.
