My name is Michelle Oakes
and I have been teaching first grade for 13 years. I student taught
in first grade and absolutely love teaching 6 and 7 year olds.
There is no other grade I'd rather teach.
I have always wanted to
be a teacher and love to create new and exciting activities
for my students. I started my teaching career after graduating
from Miami University, Ohio with a bachelors degree in Elementary
Education grades 1-8. I continued my education at Xavier
University where I received a Masters degree in Reading.
