With great excitement and enthusiasm, I welcome you and your child to First Grade! Expect this year to be filled with exhilaration, challenge, and opportunity. I am dedicated to the belief that CHILDREN COME FIRST AND ALL CHILDREN CAN LEARN!
My name is Alli Whidden, and my husband and I moved to the Air Force Academy this summer. My husband is participating in an Army-Air Force exchange program, and he is currently an AOC at the Academy. We welcomed our first baby, Savannah Belle, last year. Our home is on base, and we are loving life in this community! Our last duty station, of two years, was the USMA at West Point. I taught apart of DDESS for two years as a first grade teacher there. Prior to West Point I taught in DDESS for two years at Fort Stewart, GA. At this base school I taught 3rd grade and Kindergarten. Prior to my DDESS time, I taught in the public school systems in GA. I graduated from James Madison University where I earned my Masters degree in Elementary Education, PreK-6, as well as my Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies, PreK-6.
I look forward to working together throughout the year. Allow me to close by saying that my commitment to your child is sincere, and our interaction is essential for making your childÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s education successful. I love teaching and will do everything I can to make this year a fabulously exciting journey for your child!
