Mrs. Annette Baird : Grade 1 Teacher

Mrs. Annette Baird

Grade 1 Teacher

I am pleased to be teaching first grade again this year. It’s my ninth year teaching first grade after teaching preschool for eight. I am a graduate of Rosemont College back when it was only women! I earned my MA in Education in '07 while I worked on my PA certificate in elementary/ special ed. from LaSalle University. I am married to Tom and we have two children, Tommy and Marielle. My husband is the finance manager at O'Neil Nissan. Tommy just got a new job as the Director of Technology at St. Hubert's HS and Marielle is studying dance and psychology at DeSales University with hopes of becoming a dance therapist. I can't forget my black lab, Lola who loves everyone who comes to visit.

My family and I love to travel. This past summer,we traveled to London and Paris. While in London, we went to Wimbledon and toured the grounds while they were preparing for the tournament. We also got to meet Bradley Cooper. Sigh! We took the Chunnel to Paris. There, we went to several art museums and saw the most beautiful art work, including the Mona Lisa! We also climbed the Eiffel Tower. (Actually, we took the elevator!)
When I am not dreaming of foreign places, I like to read. One of my favorite books is called Unbroken. It is written by the same woman who wrote Seabiscuit. One of my recently read books is called The Girl on the Train. If you liked Gone Girl, this is a good read. I am currently reading All the Light We can Not See

My undergraduate degree is in art so I love to add the hands-on element to the classroom. My idea of an ideal classroom has children who are working together to solve a problem just as we would in the adult world. The best way to do this is to constantly have the students working with manipulatives and building on each others success. This year we will learn how to be explorers and discover the world around us. I know we will be successful and well prepared for the future.
