Ms. DeMarmels-First Grade
Welcome to First Grade!Mrs. Michelle DeMarmelsschool: 332-3938This is my fourth year teaching first grade at A R Ware. Prior to that, I taught Head Start at Ware for 4 years, and also directed a child development center in Charlottesville. I have been working with children for 15 years, and have decided that first grade is the place for me! I have a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, and a master's degree in Elementary Education from The College of Saint Rose, Albany, NY.First Grade is a wondereful year! This is the year that a child's reading takes off like a rocket, with advances in writing and math not far behind. Your child will be receiving a weekly newsletter to keep you posted on the SOL's we're currently covering, and to inform you of upcoming events and happenings.Homework consists of a reading bag filled with books your child is comfortable reading. Please read each night with your child, and sign the reading log. While the take-home books may seem too easy for your child, they are on his/her independent level--reading without support. In the classroom reading groups, your child is reading higher level books with teacher support at their instructional level.
