Hello, my name is Patrise Webber and I am excited for the opportunity to serve as a first grade teacher at Petersburg Primary for another school year. I have been a primary school teacher for 30 years. I came to Petersburg Primary School in the year 2000 and have been serving here as a first grade teacher for 19 years.
I attended Winthrop University, which was Winthrop College at the time, in 1980 and graduated with a BS degree in Elementary Education in 1984 and later got my certification in Early Childhood Education which allowed me to teach Kindergarten for 8 years.
I have taught at different grade levels, but first grade is my absolute favorite group of children to teach. I came to Petersburg Primary when my son was in first grade. He is now in his 4th year of teaching. My son is 25 years old and I have a daughter who is 15 years old. Having two children of my own has always guided me to treat all students the way I would want my children to be treated.
I hope that you will work with me to help educate your child this year by making sure you stay aware of what your child is doing and learning at school and make sure all homework assignments are completed. Also please make sure you are showing an interest in what your child is doing at school.
Again, I look forward to working with all my first graders this year and I'm expecting a successful year for all students. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me by a way that is convenient for you.
