I will be scheduling regular Zoom meetings for every Tuesday beginning April 21 at 11:00. I will also be scheduling “office hours” every Friday beginning April 24 from 11:00 -11:30. All Zoom meetings are certainly optional on your part but I do look forward to seeing all my little friends. The Friday office hours are just for the kids to pop in and out and chat with me one-on-one or with a small group. It’s also a great time to ask me any questions about the assigned classwork. I’m happy to hear some reading too!


I love all the pictures! Please keep them coming!


I am available for email communication ANYTIME!


First graders (and Mrs. Cincilla) just love funny jokes and riddles! Give this one a try:

Question: What has ears but cannot hear?

Dear God,
