Welcome Letter from Ms. Sandifer

Welcome to First Grade! I am starting my seventeen year with Crete-Monee School District. I have worked as a second grade and first grade teacher in the district.

I attended Northeastern University and Governor State University where I received a bachelor degree in Elementary Education. I have continued my education with graduate courses in the field of education at Governor State University. In addition to school I enjoy jewelry making, gardening, yoga, reading and spending time with my family.

I am excited about a new year with first grade students. Your child’s take home folder will be our way of communicating weekly. I ask that you look over the items in the folder weekly. Please sign the weekly behavior form and return it on Monday. I am available for questions about your child’s learning or classroom procedures. Please reach me at 708-367-2587 or by email at

I am committed to your child’s education and I thank you in advance for showing your commitment as well. With school and home working together, I know that every student can have a successful academic school year.
