Ms. Jess Edwards
I'm super excited to be teaching 1st grade this year! This is my first year at Cromer and I'm happy to be in such a positive and community-oriented school. This year I plan on using lots of math manipulatives and we have a new reading program that offers exciting and interesting books that connect to science and social studies. I'm still learning how to use our awesome smart boards, but I hope to use it for interactive instruction.
Here's a little about me: I grew up in Kingman, AZ. You probably only know Kingman from the In-N-Out you stopped at on the way to Las Vegas. I graduated from Northern Arizona University here in Flagstaff, and obviously didn't want to leave our amazing mountain town. Fall here is amazing! In my free time I really enjoy yoga and dancing. East coast swing and salsa are my two favorite dances so far. I am lactose intolerant, which is one reason I cook most of my own meals which proves to be pretty rewarding.
Communication: I will be using Class Dojo to reward academic and behavior achievement. This is how we can also communicate with messages and photos. If you don't feel comfortable with an app on your phone you may also contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
