Welcome to First Grade!



Hello! My name is Ms. Yushkevich, and I am very thrilled to be your teacher this year! I am looking forward to a great year. I am excited for a year of learning, fun, and constant adventures. I can't wait to meet all of you, but first I would like to briefly introduce myself. I completed my undergraduate work at Temple University, where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. Go Owls! This will be my second year as a first grade teacher with the Franklin Towne Team and I am super excited! 
I will strive to help your children reach their academic and learning goals by establishing a positive learning experience. I want them to try their very best. Together we will build a a happy and nurturing classroom environment. Please help your children adjust by supporting, cooperating, and understanding the expectations in a first grade classroom. I am looking forward to this year with all of you!
