Welcome to our First Grade classroom. My name is Louanne Bradley and I have been a lead teacher here at Treasure Village Montessori for the last 7 years. I moved with my three girls, Mallie (23 years old), Emma (21 years old), and Carly (15 years old) from Georgia where I taught in a small Montessori school for about ten years. I started as as a parent volunteer when my girls were young and absolutely fell in love with the Montessori way of teaching. I went back to school and got my AMS Montessori Teaching Certificate and have been teaching ever since.

***Parents should be checking Dojo daily for information on classroom work, upcoming field trips and other important dates. I am always posting fun pictures of the kids so don’t forget to check it out!
*Students have been given a folder to bring home each night. Please be sure to check this folder each evening for any important information. Monday-Thursday children will also have one or more of the following; a reader, sight words, primary phonics workbook assignments, or word list to practice reading while enforcing lessons learned at school on phonics, blends and digraphs. Please try your best to read with your child each night and return the book each day. Daily practice will build confidence, fluency and comprehension skills. We also “Drop Everything And Read” each day for 30 minutes.
*Students need to bring a backpack, lunch, water bottle, and their folder every day to school. Students must wear closed-toe shoes daily (especially in order to play on playground). If your child wears boots or dressy flats, they must bring sneakers in their backpack for playground.
