About the Teacher
Hello! I am your child's first grade teacher this year at Hope Sullivan. I feel so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful family here at the Hope. I received my BA Degree in Elementary Education from Ole Miss. This will be my third year teaching, and I am so thankful I have been given the opportunity to teach your children! I know it is going to be a great year with these first graders!
