Welcome to First Grade!
Hello! My name is Sara Briggs and I am looking forward to working with you this year. I have been a teacher with the Davidson County Schools since I graduated from Appalachian State University in 1986 . This is my 29th year of teaching and my 19th year at Welcome Elementary. I am excited about all the good things happening here this year.
During my 24 years of teaching first grade many things have changed but the most important thing remains the same: school needs to be a happy, safe place! I believe it is my responsibility to keep your children well and safe while they are here each day . I also feel strongly that children can't do their best if they are worried, or scared, so I strive to make our learning place a happy one. Children will learn best when they know someone cares and wants them to succeed. Expectations and learning goals are higher than ever before for our children but we can do it with consistent hard work and a love for learning.
