Ms. Stokes

Hello My Name Is...

Miss Stokes

Dear Fourth Graders,

            My name is Miss Stokes and I am incredibly excited that you are in our class this year. This is my first year at Spaulding Elementary School, but fourth year teaching. I just moved here from Greenville, South Carolina. I taught fifth grade for the last two years.

            I want to tell you about myself. I went to school at Furman University for both my undergraduate degree and my master’s degree. Now, I currently live in Florence. I have moved nineteen times growing up and lived in twelve different states. I went to high school in Hudson, Ohio. I have one sister who attended Furman University and now works there as the head of the Communications Department.

            Some of my favorite things to do include snowboarding, working out, video games, and anything that involves athleticism. My favorite colors are turquoise and lime green. I have two dogs named Oakley and Shiloh, and one cat named Simba! One of my hobbies that I enjoy doing is magic tricks. I look forward to showing you all a few of them!

            This year, I will be your science teacher! Science is one of my favorite subjects to teach and I cannot wait to do all sort of experiments and activities with you! We will learn about astronomy, organisms, weather, light, and sound!

            If you have any questions about me, please ask! I cannot wait to learn all about each of you. This is going to be a great year!
