My name is Ms. Callentine, and I'm thrilled to be in my fifth year of teaching at Herrera Academy of Technology. This year will be especially exciting as our class launches Reading Workshop for the very first time. First Grade is one of the most critical primary years, because students truly become independent thinkers and learners. We'll explore so many new and wonderful ideas together, and we look forward to sharing them with all of you. Take a moment to click around the site, and be sure to stop by often, as we'll be posting lots of pictures, videos, and work samples! While you're at it, why not leave a message on our blogs? See you soon!
