• welcome to first grade 
     I'm very excited to welcome you to be a part of our school family this year!  I can't wait to meet you and get to know you.  To help you get to know me a little, let me tell you a bit about myself. I have lived in six states and even on an island named Guam!  My husband, son, daughter, and I live in Durhamville.  My children are named Sean and Meghan. We have a sweet dog named Annie.  You may also have heard that I also have a turtle named Winifred who lives in our classroom during the school year.  She loves kids and will be great fun to observe!

    As for my background in teaching, I began in 2004 at Perry Browne Intermediate School in Norwich, NY.  I spent a year there working with fourth graders who needed a little extra help in reading and math.  In 2005 I began teaching 4th grade here at E.R. Hughes Elementary school in New Hartford.  In 2019 I began working with 1st graders! 

    Just like you, I have hobbies to keep me busy.  I love to read!  Spending time cuddled up with a book and a cup of coffee is my favorite weekend activity!  I also love to be outdoors.  My family spends a month each summer visiting my relatives down in Tennessee.  While we are there we swim and spend time with family. It is so much fun! Technology is also a love of mine.  I help other teachers with their computers, printers, or other technology from time to time!

    I hope that you found this information about me interesting and helpful in learning more about me.  I look forward to getting to know you over this school year.  I am positive that it will be a rewarding experience for us all.  I have high expectations for you and cannot wait to see you achieve them!

    Big Smiles from your teacher,

    Mrs. Wagner
