Hello, my name is Mrs. Hill and I am very excited to be your child’s teacher this year. I would like to officially welcome you and your family to Defino Central School. I have been very fortunate to be a part of the Defino family for the past sixteen years. I have been a special education teacher in fourth grade for a majority of that time, however I have experience in other grade levels as well, including first and second grade. I have also taught the POP class during the summer program for many years. I am thrilled to be a part of the first grade team and look forward to working with your child!
This will be a positive year for your child as we build on past successes and learn new things in first grade. With home and school working together, your child’s academic and social skills will become even stronger throughout the year. I am so excited to get to know not only your child, but you as well. Having parental support and open lines of communication is an essential part of a successful school year. It is going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for all of us!
