Welcome to First Grade!
I am delighted to be back in first grade! I taught many years in second and third grades and have substituted in grades kindergarten through fifth grade. I have a Masters Degree in Education from Western Carolina University. I am very involved with Big Brothers/Big Sisters and think it is a wonderful organization! I love first grade! The children love learning and life! Every child is a special and wonderful individual! Thank you for sharing them with us!
I am married to Jerry Prickett who often volunteers in our classroom. I have a 28 year old daughter who is also a first grade teacher in Wake County Schools and two step-sons.
I grew up in this area and love the mountains!
Mrs. Olivo is our assistant in room 102.
My motto on life and in my classroom by R. Valett is:
"Everyday is a wonderful opportunity to love, to learn, to laugh, to care, and to celebrate the joy of living."
