Welcome to Room 222!

My name is Ms. Postma and I am SO excited to be teaching first grade again this year!  More importantly I am THRILLED to be your new teacher!  It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures.  I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us.  I want to know ALL about you, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me.

I was born and raised in Butte, Montana.  I have one older brother who is married and has three beautiful children.  They live in Miles City, Montana.  Over the summer all of my family spent a week at a lake house in Idaho. We went fishing, whitewater rafting, horseback riding and hiking.  It was lots of fun.  I LOVE spending time with my family. 

When I graduated from high school I moved to Boston to attend Lesley University and to work as a nanny.  I have taught at JQS for more than ten years both in second grade and of course first grade.  First grade is my favorite grade and having taught second grade helps me to know exactly where you need to go so we can reach for the stars this year!

I live in Chinatown, right across from our school.  My husband is a computer teacher and we have one beautiful daughter named Olivia who is seventeen years old.  I also have a tortoise named Maria Polo who will be coming to visit our classroom. 

I’m so excited to be your new “Director” and for you to be part of this AWESOME, all star “cast” we have lined up for Room 222.  This is going to be a BLOCKBUSTER year!
