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.
