**Busy as a bee in First Grade!**
Rachel Tichy (First Grade)
Welcome to the Busy Bees First Grade class. I will try to keep you informed about news and about activities that are going on in our classroom and at school.
We will enjoy getting to know each other, adjusting to school and classroom rules and routines, and making new friends. We are looking forward to having a fun and productive year.
About the Teacher
This is my 23rd year working at Madison Avenue. This is my 13th year to teach. I love working with the boys and girls. I expect them to learn and enjoy learning, but I also want them to feel good about themselves. These things will help them to be life long learners.
I was married to a wonderful man. We were married for 38 years. I have 3 children, and 2 grandchildren (Hanna, Grayson and Bryce). I like to read, paint ceramics, and shop till I drop. I have 3 chihuahuas and 1 cockatiel.
It is a privilege to help the boys and girls in our class become life long learners and grow into becoming responsible adults.
