Hello, my name is Ms. Gilbert and I am thrilled to welcome you and your child to first grade. I am excited to begin a wonderful school year that will serve as a foundation of future learning for your child. I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama and graduated from the former C.W. Hayes High School in 2008. I graduated from Berea College in Berea, Kentucky in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education.
I hold the view that a successful student has support in their learning process. When parents and teachers work together everyone benefits. It is vital that everyone works together to support your child’s learning. I will work hard to build a community of learners who feel respected and safe in our classroom, love learning, and accept responsibility for themselves as we explore, learn and have fun this year.
Welcome to First Grade,
