Ms. Rebecca France

My name is Rebecca France.  I have the honor of being a First Grade teacher at Memorial School for the last twenty years.   First Grade is an exciting year filled with challenges and tremendous growth, and of course loose teeth.  It is a joy to be part of such an important journey in a child's life.  Our school flourishes as a diverse community of learners.  In Room 6, I strive to create a fun, safe, enriching environment in which all children feel safe to take risks.     It is important to create a classroom community in which each child can work to his/her full potential to meet and exceed grade level expectations.  There are many opportunities to read throughout the day through shared, guided, and independent reading.   Our math curriculum is fun and challenging.  Working with 6 and 7 year-olds is a true joy.  Their love for learning is contagious.  As I stay current with research through coursework and readings, my goal is to use every opportunity I can to make learning meaningful for all learners. I address the visual, audio and bodily kinesthetic learner daily with the use of songs, games, Brain Gym strategies and age appropriate projects.  In Room 6, every minute is an opportunity to learn. I look forward to working with you and your child throughout this year as we establish a partnership with the goal of having great First Grade experience. Please feel free to contact me at or stop by Room 6.
