Welcome to Ms. Hawes's First Grade class website!

My name is Ms. Hawes and I am so excited to be your teacher this year. We are going to do some fun things this year but we will also learn a lot.  First let me tell you a little about myself. I was born in Cleveland, Ohio and I’m the third oldest of eight children. I attended the University of Cincinnati(Bachelors) and The University of Mount St. Joseph(Master's).  I have two daughters Cionna Marie(14), and Stevie Nicole (7). This will be my sixth year as a primary teacher and I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you.



Now let's discuss some of my expectations, In our classroom students are expected to be Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn. During our first week of school we will define what each of these words mean in our classroom.


Together we will work as a community to Rise like a PHOENIX, remember everyday that "Today I will learn, Today I will listen, Today I will shine like the brightest star, Today YOU will achieve!
