1st Grade - Ms. Twomey

Welcome to First Grade! I am so excited to begin my 2nd year at LEAD! Last year was truly an amazing year for me. I not only loved my first year at LEAD, I also adopted my sweet baby boy, Riley, at the end of the year.  I have always called my students my children, and it is simply the best to come home each night to my very own child. A very exciting new chapter of life has begun!  

I have  been teaching for 13 years and dreamed of being a teacher since I was 5 years old.  I earned my teaching credential from SF State in 2004 and  and my Masters in Teaching Reading (with a Reading Specialist certificate) in 2009. I have taught in grades K-3 and and  started the first Kindergarten programs at two different schools. I also created the first ever reading intervention program at one of my former schools.

I am very excited to bring my Literacy background to first grade. My passion is to develop a love of reading and writing in my students.

I believe that children do much better in school when their families play an active role in their education and work to build a strong home school connection.  I cannot wait to work together to provide your child with a strong academic foundation and a love of learning!
