Welcome Back! I am so excited to be your 1st-grade teacher! It’s going to be a great year full of new friends, new adventures, and discoveries! Let’s make this an incredible year, full of respect, learning, and FUN!
Outside of school, I am a Mom of two girls; I have a husband, one dog (A Great Dane), three guinea pigs, and three chickens!
In addition to teaching children, I am a US Airforce Veteran. I used to instruct pilots and aircrew members how to use their life-saving equipment such as parachutes and life rafts. I have also traveled with the Airforce to support missions in both Greenland and Antarctica! I can't wait to tell you all about it!
In my spare time, I enjoy playing with my children, exercising, making candles, and going to the beach! I can’t wait to hear all about you and what you enjoy doing! I am so happy to begin this journey with you, and this is just day one of a super fun year!
In this classroom...
We will be talking a lot about respect (for each other, our environment, and our community.) I want you to know you are cared about, and I value your ideas, thoughts, and actions. You have unique talents and strengths, and I can’t wait for you to share them with your classmates. I know you will bring so much to our class, and I am anxious to learn all about you! I will incorporate multiple hands-on activities in our lessons and keep the classroom motivating, inspiring, and most of all,….FUN! It is essential to me that a school is a place where you WANT to be, and I promise to provide you with a safe, caring, calm, and kind environment!
I love to have conversations and meetings with parents throughout the year. Please contact me with any questions or concerns. I wish to partner with you to best support your child! I will also be sending home instructions for the “Dojo” app as well as our online learning platform (Seesaw). You can always email me with any questions: Laura.Saddlemire@svsu.org
