Week of September 9th and September 13th

Dear 1st Grade Parents,

My name is Danielle Roberts. I am so excited for this opportunity to teach first grade at FBCS this year. I grew up in Slidell at FBC, and it is always wonderful to come back home. I graduated from William Carey University in May 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in elementary education. I have been teaching English in China at a Chinese Kindergarten for six years. Before I went to China, I taught first grade here at FBCS for two years. I am looking forward to working with and getting to know each one of your children. I believe God has great plans for your children, and I am excited to see what God has in store for us this year!
