• Welcome to First Grade in Room 116


    It is such a privilege to be your child’s first grade teacher and to share in their educational journey.  This year marks my 24th year as a classroom teacher and a happy return to teaching first grade.  I have been part of the McCoy Elementary community for seven years.


    My primary objective is that our classroom is a place where all students feel valued, secure, and excited about learning.


    Students will have many opportunities to work alongside peers in hands-on activities that will promote conversation about our learning and explanations of thinking and strategies.


    Most importantly, each student will be respected as a special individual and valued as an integral part of our learning community.


    In our classroom, students will be guided to follow these principles:


    Be considerate and respectful to each other.


    Do your personal best.


    Mistakes are valuable learning experiences.


    We take care of each other.


    I look forward to getting to know you and your child as we work together to make this a special and rewarding school year full of learning and growing.


    Please feel free to contact me at 943-5030 ext. 8432, or by email at richardsk@georgetownisd.org whenever you have questions or concerns.
