• Welcome!

    Welcome to Room 1209! My name is Miss King-Sadler. I am one of the two mainstream First Grade teachers. First grade is a year filled with learning, new friendships and fun activities. Our days are filled with Literacy, new concepts in Math, Science and Social Studies.

    I am delighted to be your child's First Grade teacher. Personally, I believe that first grade will be your child's most challenging year in their entire educational career!
