Welcome to Mrs. Urban's First Grade

Hi!  I teach first grade at West View, and I have been teaching for over 20 years!  I have taught at other schools in District Six and in Richland Two. I attended USC-Columbia for my undergraduate degree as well as two Master's degrees.  I received the renewal for my National Board Certification.  I guess you can say that education is important to me! 
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family. I have two boys who went to West View, both are college students now.  My husband is a teacher at Dorman.  I have a black lab and a gray cat who are part of my family, too. For fun, I like to read, play Sudoku, and visit museums.  I also love nature, so I love to walk and hike. 
I have a wonderful assistant, Mrs. Nielsen.  She is with me for half a day.  She loves children, and loves to help students learn.
I am looking forward to a great year of love and learning with my students.
