1st Grade - Rm 102

Name and Grade

Ms. Michelle Casey • 1st Grade

Where are you From?

Morton Grove (Northwest Chicago Suburb)  

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Galapagos Islands. It's the area where Charles Darwin studied animals to develop his Theory of Evolution. The entire area is a biological marine reserve so the animals feel safe and aren't afraid to come up to humans.  

What is one book that everyone must read?

The Missing Piece meets the Big O  

Who was your favorite teacher growing up?

Ms.Eileen Walvrood. The french teacher during my Jr/Senior year of High School. She was the only one who actually took time out of class to ask her students if there was something on our minds that we wanted to discuss. Sometimes talking about what is in the news or going on in our lives can be more of a learning experience than any chapter in a book. Merci Madam Walvrood!  

What do you like most about Goudy?

The respect everyone has for each other. From the hallways to the playground, I see students always willing to give a helping hand.
