A Little About Mrs. Pierdolla

 

 

http://classroom.nbisd.org/users/0518/images/031.jpg
     Hi! My name is Mrs. Pierdolla and I am so excited to be part of the Lamar first grade team! More importantly, I am THRILLED to be your teacher! It’s going to be a fun year full of learning and new adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us.

    I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. When I graduated from high school, I moved to San Marcos to attend Texas State University… Go Bobcats! I majored in Early Childhood Education and couldn’t wait to graduate and start teaching!

    This is my seventh year teaching first grade at Lamar Elementary. I LOVE teaching the first grade and I plan to challenge you to reach for the stars this year!

     I am married to a wonderful, hardworking man named Chris. We have a two year old son, Hollstin, who keeps us on our toes! He is super smart, loves to chat and likes to explore everything around him. I apologize in advance because I am sure you will hear me or the kids talk about him a lot!

    We also have a black lab named Mack that we adore… He is a very sweet boy and loves to give slobbery kisses.   
    In my spare time, I enjoy being on the lake, spending time with family and friends, scrapbooking, antiquing, shopping, and of course… thinking and planning fun ideas and activities for learning!
    I have worked all summer long preparing my classroom and lesson plans for your child. I am very passionate about teaching and children. I cannot wait for this year to get started!

The easiest way to get a response from me is through e-mail. I try to check my e-mails at least twice a day, during my planning period (11:45 - 12:30) and ALWAYS before I leave campus.

Important Notes and Newsletters
    I like to keep important notes, brochures and newsletters on my website throughout the year, just in case you ever need an extra one or need to refer back to it for any reason.

Lunch at Lamar
    You are welcome to have lunch with your child any day that you would like to.  If you plan on eating our wonderful cafeteria food, please call or send a note with your child so that Ms. Corina will know to order food for you.  If you are planning on bringing your own lunch, just come on in.  The children are always so excited when Mom, Dad, Grandma, or Grandpa comes to eat lunch.  When eating lunch with your child, you may either eat in the cafeteria or you and your child may go out to our beautiful courtyard and enjoy an outside picnic.  Please just tell me and the cafeteria monitor on duty if you will be taking your child to the courtyard.

    Our cafeteria provides an assortment of food choices for your child's enjoyment.  In first grade, your child may pick from three choices. You may send money with your child in his/her BEE Folder and I will send it to the cafeteria for you.

    When sending a check or cash to school to pay for your child's lunch, please put the check/cash in an envelope and label it with your child's name and lunch number.  It is also a good idea to put your child's lunch number in the memo part of your check.
