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.
