Welcome to first grade! My name is Amanda Allen and I’m the First grade teacher at Grandview Elementary. I am so excited to have your child in my classroom. First grade is a wonderful time where we all learn together. My goal as a teacher is that we (teacher, parents, and child) work as a team to provide the academic and social support that he/she needs to be successful. The most amazing part of first grade is how quickly your child will develop into a learner. I am so excited to work with you and your child this year!
