Welcome Parents, I'm Christina Phillips, your child's First Grade teacher this year. I have taught kindergarten and pre-k for 16 years and I love it! Five, six and seven year olds are creative, enthusiastic, spontaneous, forgiving and sometimes hilarious. I have my bachelor's degree in English and Psychology. I have an elementary (K-5) certification for life, a secondary (6-12) certification in reading and psychology for life and an early childhood endorsement, all from the University of Texas in Austin.
I have 3 children, 2 boys and a girl, and 4 grandchildren, 3 boys and a girl. My grandchildren range in age from 2 to 20, my 20 year old grandson is at college . I have lived in the Bastrop area for almost 40 years.
Please feel free to talk to me about any concerns or questions you have about your child, the classroom, or helping your child at home. I'm looking forward to an exciting and fulfilling year with my students. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org and my conference time is from 8:40 to 9:20. I can be available after school on most days. If you would like to have a conference please email me to plan a time to meet.
Please have your child read to you daily, this is crucial for first grade. Be encouraging and enthusiastic when you listen to them, they crave your attention. We will be writing alot this year too, please show an interest in the work they do. Ask questions when looking through their work, they are working hard. Our room number is 205 this year.
Thank you so much.
