1st Grade Meet The Teachers
Hi. My name is Elaine Farr. I have been a Trumbull resident for 22 years. I am married and have 3 daughters. My oldest works is married and lives in New Jersey. The middle daughter recently moved to Seattle. The youngest is graduated from SCSU majoring in Biology and would like to teach high school Biology, Chemistry, and General Science. I enjoy playing golf and hiking with my husband. I also enjoy reading, jogging, cross fit, and doing puzzles.
Hello! My name is Megan Kelly. I graduated from the University of New Hampshire and received my masters shortly after from Sacred Heart. When I’m not at Tashua, I like biking, boating, and trying new restaurants because I am a total foodie! I also love to travel, which all started when I studied abroad in Granada, Spain. I absolutely love teaching first grade because there is such a significant change socially, academically, and emotionally in my students from August to June! I look forward to spending the rest of this year with my energetic, curious, fun-loving group of students.
First Grade Curriculum
The curriculum in Grade 1 focuses on the beginning learner. This new learner is eager to undertake the serious business of education, a life-long process of acquiring, organizing and using information. The grade one student is continuing to understand and develop relationships and beginning to plan, execute and assess new tasks.
First graders see themselves as competent and view school as a good place for them to be. The curriculum supports and encourages a balance of rich learning activities for each child and provides an excellent foundation for continued study.
