Welcome to first grade! What an amazing journey you will embark on with Mrs. Sleeth this year. You will not believe how much your child will learn and grow throughout first grade. Mrs. Sleeth is looking forward to getting to know your child and your family this school year.
This year will mark Mrs. Sleeth's 17th year in education, with twelve of those years being in first grade. She has spent most of that time teaching at Locust Grove, but also taught two years at LJM. She is a high school graduate of Red Lion, so she takes great pride in the district. She has a Bachelors degree from York College of Pennsylvania and a Masters degree in Instruction and Curriculum from Penn State University. She continues to further her education by taking a variety of graduate courses.
When Mrs. Sleeth is not working with first graders, she spends time with her family. Her two daughters, Jordan and Jillian, keep her very busy. Jordan is an eleventh grader and Jillian is a tenth grader at the Red Lion Senior High School. Mrs. Sleeth thinks that it’s very bittersweet thinking about how both of her girls are in high school now. Both girls are involved in playing field hockey and softball, so they keep Mrs. Sleeth extremely busy all year long!
