1st Grade

My name is Pamela Hansen and I am very excited to be the first grade teacher at Our Lady Queen of Apostles! First grade is a very special year where students begin to define themselves. I am excited to see how the students will grow in a positive classroom community full of encouragement, teamwork, friendships, play, and lots of learning! Students will build important reading and writing skills, master lifelong math skills, and assume responsibilities and routines.


The 1st graders and 5th graders worked together on a President's Day craft.
