Welcome to First Grade! I am so excited for a brand new school
year. We have had a wonderful beginning of school. This week we have introduced 10 spelling words. These words are Kindergarten review words. Please practice them at home each evening. We will have a spelling test this Friday, August, 15th. This first test will be a practice test to help us understand the procedure of taking spelling tests. I will go over this procedure with parents at Open House on Monday, August 18th. I look forward to seeing you at this event. If you have any questions please feel free to
contact me by email or by phone.
I wanted to tell you a little about myself. My name is Mrs. Skinner and this is my 14th
year teaching and my 12th year teaching first grade at The Villages Charter
School. I was born and raised in Belleview. I currently live in Belleview with my husband
and our three children. My daughter
Rylan and my step son Gavin are both 7 and will be in second grade here at
VCS. My youngest daughter Kaylen is 4
and is in the Pre K 4 program at the ECC this year. I graduated
from The University of South Florida with a double major in Elementary
Education and Mass Communications. Teaching has always been my passion
and I am absolutely delighted to be your child's teacher this year.
