Welcome to First Grade!
My name is Mrs. Adams and I will be your first grade teacher this year. I am excited to see all of your faces.
For some of you this is your first time with me so I will introduce myself. My name is Courtney Adams. I graduated from Washington State University in 2008 with my B.A.. in Elementary Education, GO COUGS! Then in 2012 I received my Master's degree in Integrating Arts into the Elementary Curriculum from Lesley University.
I live here in Lacey with my husband, Blaine and our 5 year old little man, Lincoln. We also have a cat named Fish.
I firmly believe that all students can learn. I have a deep understanding that each student is special and different and we will really focus on that this year. I have a special relationship with the teaching profession because I was a student who didn't learn one specific way. I needed lots of strategies and techniques for learning, and that is my mission in the classroom; to teach many different ways so that my many different students can be successful and feel comfortable in their learning environment!
