Our Class Mission: We are here to learn how to read, write, count, and care for one another. We will always do our best work, work nicely together, and follow the I-Care rules.
Hello! My name is Marie Lucas and this is my 6th year teaching Kindergarten. I graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University in 2010 with my degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Philosophy. I believe in holding all students to high expectations, and through my own observations and experience, students are eager to meet those expectations. I strive to make my passion for reading, writing, and learning contagious in the classroom. I love to watch my students blossom into independent readers, writers, and learners. My favorite children's books are: Where the Wild Things Are, Skippyjon Jones, The Giving Tree, The Missing Piece, and so many more!
I love to spend my free time reading, bike riding, and kayaking. I am a Florida native and I love Florida wildlife! Some favorite things of mine are: animals, all things nature, chocolate, my Jeep, my cat, and my books! My current dream is to save up money to build a tiny house so I can travel the United States.
Me, when I was in Kindergarten. My cat, Gatsby.
