Miss Jennifer Cariveau
Greetings Hazel Park Families!
My name is Jennifer Cariveau and I am so honored to be your child’s first grade teacher! I come to Hazel Park with 11 years of teaching experience in both kindergarten and first grade. I believe strongly in the power of creating a classroom community where kids feel celebrated for who they are. This year, we will work together to create meaningful learning experiences while we all grow as learners.
We will work together on our IB journey to strengthen our learner profiles. In doing so, we will focus on what it means to be good communicators & inquirers, as well as balanced, caring, principled, courageous, reflective, knowledgeable, open-minded, and global thinkers. We will incorporate and ingrain these qualities into our everyday learning experiences. We will work towards becoming internationally minded individuals who deeply care about and contribute to the world around us.
I am passionate about literacy and have a strong background in reading instruction. I will give your child the tools they need to become confident readers while also instilling a love for reading and writing. We will also be mathematicians & scientists in room 1310! I promise to create a fun, warm, and exciting learning environment for your child. I consider us a team, so please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have as we move through our school year.
I promise your child will learn something new every day. Some days they will bring it home in their hands. Some days they will bring it home in their minds. Some days they will bring it home in their hearts.
