1st Grade 


Mrs. Joni Primus



Hi! My name is Joni Primus. I’ve been teaching in Catholic schools for 35 years. I love teaching first grade. I like to see the children become independent learners. I love seeing the light in their eyes when they learn something new. I enjoy seeing the progress the students make in language arts; they start off with letter sounds and decoding small words and leave first grade able to read chapter books.  I am glad that I am able to teach the whole child, working on the spiritual as well as academics.  I teach religion, language arts, math, handwriting, and art. I teach science classes for both first grade classes while my colleague teaches social studies. We have specialist for music, phy-ed, library, and computer classes.
