Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Taylor

Welcome! My name is Hannah Taylor, and I am a first grade teacher at Benton Elementary School. I am honored to teach in such a hard-working, community-centered school.

When I am not in school, I am spending time with my husband, family, and friends. I enjoy arts and crafts, writing, shopping, watching movies, solving puzzles (of all sorts), visiting historical sites and museums, and trying new things.

 

I believe my classroom should be a warm, safe, inviting community. I want students to be excited to come to school, and excited to learn! In first grade we will do a lot of READING! First graders are expected to make huge leaps in reading... we CAN do it! We will also focus on handwriting using the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum. In math, we will be using the Envisions 2.0 curriculum, and focusing on addition and subtraction within 20. In writing, we will use the Lucy Calkins curriculum to explore a variety of writing genres: narrative, informational, and opinion. In social studies and science we will study many topics including earth science, physical science, life science, nutrition, holidays, and traditions. I can be contacted by email (htaylor@msad49.org) or by phone (453-4240). I am also available to meet after school until 3:40.
