Hello First Graders and Parents!
Information about 1st Grade and Your Teacher...
Si tiene alguna pregunta puede llamar a la oficina y preguntar por Mrs. Ramirez 970-348-2400.
Hello! My name is Denise Shannon, and have been teaching at Heiman ever since the doors opened in August of 2003. I have been very lucky to teach both first and second grades at Heiman. Through my career I have also taught preK, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 9th, 10, and 11th grades.
I have three energetic children, my oldest daughter is in high school at Greeley Central, my middle daughter is in middle school, and my son is in second grade. My children love to play soccer, ride horses and camp. I grew up in Greeley. I received my BA at UNC and my Master's Degree in Reading Instruction and Curriculum from Grand Canyon University. I went to school, lived, and worked for several years in both Kansas and Arizona before moving back to Colorado.
Heiman is a wonderful neighborhood school that focuses on the 4 B's of character: Be Kind, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe. This year I will continue to imprelment Blended Learning in the classroom and collaborate with my first grade families using Class DOJO.
We will continue to use Reading Mastery as our reading program and Engage NY for math. I am so excited to receive new technology to help with our ST Math computer program.
I am here to help your students learn in multiple ways including using manipulatives in math, exploration, teamwork, and discussion.
