Mrs. Stephanie Joint
Welcome to the wonderful world of 1st grade!
This is my 8th year of teaching 1st grade at Braymer Elementary. I was lucky enough to attend Braymer throughout my elementary and high school years, graduating in 2003. Then, I attended Graceland University, where I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I am honored to teach our future leaders, and am thankful to be blessed with this opportunity each day. I take pride in creating a family atmosphere in our classroom. I also encourage showing kindness and acceptance of our differences. I feel teaching is one of, if not THE most important career in our society. We have the future in our hands, and I want to make the most out of it. When I'm not educating our youth, I enjoy spending time with my husband, 3 children, and my many nieces and nephews. We enjoy playing sports in the backyard, swimming, spending time on our family farm, and vacationing in Colorado any chance we get. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Parents and teachers working together is a recipe for a successful school year.
Students had a great time with an apple experiment, apple tasting, graphing our favorite ways to eat apples, and enjoying homemade applesauce.
On the 1st day of school we read the story "Jitter Juice" and talked about our feelings on the 1st day of school. Students then enjoyed "jitter juice" to help wash those first day jitters aways.
