David Brewer Elementary School

Mrs. Bell's First Grade Friends



Dear Families,


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 michelle.bell@lvpioneers.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.
