My name is Michelle Bell and I am thrilled to be your child’s first grade teacher this year! I have been teaching for 20 years and have been privileged to teach several different grade levels. I graduated from Southeast Missouri State University in 1993 with my Bachelors degree and received my Master's degree from Webster University in 2000.
I have been happily married to Jody for 15 years and we have 4 beautiful children and an adorable grand baby! I have lived in Leavenworth/Lansing area for the last 12 years and am thrilled to call this area home.
Homework- I would like you to know that I do understand how challenging it is to have a family, work full time, and have to run kids to activities. I will do my best to accommodate your family and intrude on family time as little as possible. I will be sending home homework with your child on Monday and Wednesday. I will do my best to make sure it can be completed in as little time as possible.
Mondays will be Family Journals or Poetry folders, Spelling Words
Wednesday will be a book to read to you or a math page to complete
Spelling words will be sent home and should be practiced nightly for Friday’s test.
Daily folders- My class will be bringing home a folder EVERY day. Please check the contents nightly and return the folder to school the next day. Students will earn a sticker on their folder every day.
If you ever have a need to contact me, you are welcome to send a note in their folders, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call during my plan time from 12:10-1:10, and I will reply that day if possible. Please let me know if you need anything.
