Welcome to Mrs. Abrams' Alpha Phonic Classroom
Welcome to My Classroom
My name is Teresa Abrams.
I am a wife for 31 years and a mother of 3 beautiful children by birth, one wonderful daughter-in-law by love and a precious grand-daughter Evelyn that calls me her Gigi.
I am a live long resident of Wylie for 55 years.
And I am a Gardener of Children for the past 30 years.
At the beginning of school I receive packet of seeds. I begin planning my schedule and checking my tools. I make sure my soil is just right and I that I have plenty of room for sprouting and then I plant my seeds.
I water them. I feed them. I make sure they have plenty of sunshine, and then I wait. I watch has they begin to sprout. I watch them closely and check them daily for weeds and pests. I know that different plants need different things and that each plant has its own shape.
Some plants grow quickly, pushing upward, eager impatient.
Some grow more slowly, unfolding themselves bit by bit.
Some plants sprout thin and tall.
Some are bushy and wide-spreading.
Some are bold and showy. They are brightly colored saying “LOOK at ME!”
Some are silvery and quiet.
A few are like wildflowers and will grow anywhere you put them.
And some need gentle care, and a special watching-over.
I tend to my garden all year long until the year is over and my job is done.
But I keep watching them as they grow, uncurling their stems and stretching their leaves outward and showing their faces to the sun.
At the end of each year I will put my tools away and wait for a new packet of seed and for a new garden to begin.
I am a Kindergarten Teacher
If anyone asks me what I do, I would read them this book; Mrs. Spitzer’s Garden by Edith Pattou.
I pray each and every day that I will always have Mrs. Spitzer’s love, gentleness, and patience.
Please feel free to call me at school,if you have any questions or comments. I am looking forward to a wonderful year with you and your child!
