Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to first grade at Cram Elementary! I am so thrilled to be your child’s 1st-grade teacher and I know this will be an awesome year! A quick introduction; my name is Mrs. Burgess. I graduated from California State University Northridge with a Bachelors in Elementary Education and a California Elementary Teaching Credential. I am currently working on my Masters in Instructional Technology. This will be my fourth year at Cram teaching first grade.
For your child’s journey to be successful, it is essential for me to understand that each child is a unique individual with special qualities and needs. With the support of students and families, we will create a classroom environment that will recognize and respect individuality. To support each student’s learning, I will create a classroom that offers a variety of meaningful teaching styles so that each child will have the opportunity to succeed. The children will grow and learn at their own rate. I invite you to play an active role in your child’s education by talking with your child each day about their learning, reading together every night, and communicating with me.
I want there to be open communication between us. If at any time you have a question, I will be happy to talk with you. Either, write me a note, give me a call, or email me and I will try to respond as soon as possible. I want you to feel well informed throughout the year.
