Ms. Emily Keane
Hello, my name is Ms. Keane!
(My name is pronounced "cane", like a candy cane!)
This year is my 11th year teaching, and my 6th year teaching first grade. To me, first grade is one of the most exciting and important years of school! First grade is about learning and growing, and laying the foundation for school success. We work hard to build reading, phonics, math, science, and social studies skills, and learn how to communicate, collaborate, and problem solve!
I believe that learning happens everywhere and all day, in and out of a classroom. My job as an educator isn’t just to impart information, but to give my students the tools to be learners for a lifetime: to be proficient readers, question askers, problem solvers, and critical thinkers. My role is to be a facilitator and guide to them in their educational journey. Ultimately, the true test of my teaching is how students will be able to pursue their own learning in the future and solve real-life problems using the tools I’ve helped them to gain from their time in my classroom. I believe the future of the world is sitting in my classroom today!
