Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!
My name is Mrs. Toporczyk. I will be your child’s first grade teacher at Harvey Austin Elementary School #97. This will be my fifth-year teaching at Harvey Austin. When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, walking, riding my bike, swimming, baking, playing board games, and spending time with my family and friends. I have two sisters, an older sister and identical twin sister. Both of my sisters are teachers as well so teaching kind of runs in my family.
First grade is such an important grade and the growth the students will make will be huge! I have very high expectations for my students. With last year being virtual and all the challenges they faced; we will work hard on catching each child up. I really encourage you to read with your child every day and work with them to be the best they can be in school. Students at this age are like sponges and soak everything right in!
I use Class Dojo as my means of communication. It is so important to have that parent teacher support. The school days may be hectic, and a Dojo message is a quick way for me to update parents about homework, struggles, events, etc.
Any concerns you have, do not hesitate to contact me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. My phone number is (716) 816-4460 ext: 1157. My cell phone number is (716) 901-4326. I look forward to working with your child this academic school year!!!
