First Grade

Welcome to our First Grade Classroom where your child will continue to develop a lifelong love of learning!

My name is Katherine Wright; this is my fourth year teaching at St Nicholas Catholic School.  My journey with our school began in 1997, when my children began at Holy Family, now St. Nicholas.  I have subbed in the school for many years, and when my children graduated from the school, I began teaching full time.  This is my third year teaching First Grade.

St. Nicholas Catholic School has high expectations for all its students and I set high goals for my 1st graders, actively engaging them in learning. I use positive motivation and constant encouragement to help the students consistently reach their goals. I remind students why we are here, to become saints.   I share with them, there has never been any one created with the special role they have been given by God. The theme of our classroom is “I know the plans I have for you” declares the Lord “plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11.  We strive to follow God’s plan for us in the classroom and do our best at all times.
