Dr. Morgan's Classroom Website


Hello parents,

Welcome to 1st grade! My name is Kriscinda Morgan and it is a pleasure to have your child in my class this year.

It is my philosophy that each student who enters my classroom is a unique individual with special talents, gifts and abilities. It is my job to discover these and help each student to grow not only academically, but also socially and emotionally. As an educator I create an environment that is caring, safe, engaging, supports taking risks, encourages teamwork and challenges each child to reach beyond his or her potential. In order to create a classroom that is conducive to learning I guide my students to be creative, use their sense of wonder, and promote being respectful for all things and people.

In order to provide your child, and all the students in our class, the positive learning environment they each deserve, I want to take this time to share the following information. Please stay tuned to this site by bookmarking it. This will ensure that you have access to information needed throughout the year. You will find school policies, procedures and district links, as well as classroom information. You can email me anytime as well. 

We, as a team, (parents, students, teachers) are resonsible for the learning environment. As the leading partner in the education of each student, it is our goal to create a positive learning environment for all students. By treating each student with respect and dignity, we are modeling the behavior expectations. We respect and cherish the individuality of each student. 

We work together. We believe that the most successful classrooms are those with high parental involvement. Education does not happen only at school, but in all areas of one's life.

Many of our subjects utilize internet resources. Use of the computer at school, as well as home, is essential in many projects. In our class, we will discuss the importance of good decision making when using the internet. From the first week, we will go over privacy information and do's and dont's of what to click while searching. Here are helpful links for good internet etiquette to support our learning.
