Welcome to Mrs. Palmer's first-grade class, where we are WILD about first grade! This is my third year of teaching and my fourth year at Lucy Elementary. I have previously taught kindergarten for years and am excited to study, learn, and prepare for my first year teaching first grade.
I am originally from Mississippi and moved to Memphis for my husband's job four years ago. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Music from William Carey University. Upon graduating, I worked as a Music Therapist at a psychiatric hospital for 2 years. When we moved to Tennessee, I was so fortunate to be offered a job at Lucy as a teacher's assistant in the special education Pre-K department. I fell in love and became passionate about education, and I knew I wanted to further my degree in education. This past summer, I graduated with a Master's in Early Childhood Education from Relay Graduate School of Education.
My husband, Jacob, and I have a sweet, little two-year-old boy named Daniel. We are so thrilled to be adding to our family in January when we welcome our little girl!
I am looking forward to the school year! Thank you for supporting our class and your child as we grow together this school year!
