In the 1st grade, students continue with Voices, our reading program, which is a wonderful tool to help instill values. It uses Multi-Cultural Books to teach the skills necessary to become a successful reader, writer and speaker. Among many other subjects such as Spanish and Art, students in the first grade learn about our God, the essential fundamentals of Mathematics and their responsibility to the world around them.
Having attended Sacred Heart University as an undergraduate, Patricia Timmeny, our first grade teacher, received her Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology, and her Connecticut Teaching certificate for Nursery to Eighth grade. She returned five years later and graduated with an MAT, with a concentration in Gifted Education.
Patricia was the Lead teacher at St. Anne’s in Milford before coming to SASB, and is also currently tutoring second grade at Forest School in West Haven.
