Degrees and Certifications:

Miss Foster

Welcome to first grade!  This will be my 12th year teaching at New Hanover and my 8th year teaching first grade!  I taught kindergarten for 4 years before moving to first grade.  I loved teaching kindergarten, but I love first grade too.  I mostly enjoy having the whole day with the kiddos to help them dig deeper into learning.  I went to Albright College and earned a degree in Child and Family Studies while also getting my teaching certificates in both Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education.  In 2013, I completed my master's degree from Neumann University in Elementary Education with an emphasis in social and emotional learning by educating the whole child, and this spring I completed a certificate program in building resiliency.


When I'm not busy teaching, I LOVE to read.  I read all kinds of things both fiction and nonfiction.  I hope I am able to instill this love in my students.  I also love going to the beach, playing with my cat, Oliver, and adding to my shoe collection.  There are so many shoe related things in my classroom from a calendar to tape dispensers and a stapler; shoes are a small obsession of mine. :)  Finally, I love to bake.  Trying new recipes is something I do often, almost every weekend.  My friends are never lacking a sweet treat to satisfy their cravings. 


I hope we have a great year together!
