Hi!
My name is Ms. Zoe and I am so excited to be teaching 1st Grade this year! This will be my 2nd year at Peak and I love being creative in my classroom and engaging the wild imaginations of 1st graders:). As you enter my classroom, you will see that I believe the learning space should be very student friendly while also representing the learning we are working on every day. I have worked with kids of all ages for many years in camp settings and I'm very comfortable learning in outdoor environments and working with all types of learners. I graduated from Michigan State University and I'm very close with my family as we have moved out west to start our new life adventure!  

   

When I’m not in school, I enjoy getting outside and camping, hiking and exploring the wild west of Colorado, Utah, and beyond. I'm looking forward to a great school year and below are some of what we will explore in 1st grade.

 

Literacy Topics:

  • Tools and Work
  • Habits of Character
  • Sun, Moon, and Stars
  • Birds and Their Amazing Bodies
  • Caring For Birds 

 

Field Experiences & Expeditions:
