Welcome to Mrs. Carmichael's Class!
I am so excited to meet each and everyone of you and I am looking forward to a great year of learning, exploring, sharing, growing, and laughing together! I have lived in Stafford County all my life and this is my 29th year of teaching. I went to Grafton Village as a student during my elementary years, then to Gayle Middle, and graduated from Stafford Senior High in 1984! I attended Emory & Henry College in Southwest Virginia and after graduating in 1988 began my teaching career at Widewater Elementary. I taught there for 6 years, took a year off and came to Grafton to teach in 1995. I have 4 children, 1 daughter and 3 sons, who also attended Grafton Elementary! I love spending time with my children and my husband of 27 years!! :) Welcome to 1st Grade!!
In my classroom the students will have the opportunity to share their ideas and thoughts in a way that is welcoming and inviting each and every day. We will learn together throughout the year in many new and exciting ways. The students will become independent thinkers and problem solvers! I enjoy having parents in my classroom as volunteers and I welcome you to come in and share your talents with the students. If you have any questions or concerns please send me a note, call the school and leave a message, or contact me through e-mail. We are going to have a super year!!
