Welcome to First Grade. My name is Marya Ezelle and I teach at Sale Elementary
School. Sale is a small K - 4 school located in Columbus, MS.
As you know, this is an important time in the life of your child. I try
very hard to make it one that is both academically successful and enjoyable.
This is my 40th year to teach and all of my years have been spent in this
grade. I really enjoy teaching the younger children!
I believe in close communication with parents. You know your child much
better than I do, and working together we will meet his/her needs. The
things that your child will learn this year are absolutely amazing. No
longer is first grade just reading, writing and arithmetic. We also have
computers in the classroom, and we have spelling, language, social studies
,science and creative writing. It is very easy to get behind if your child
misses school, so please try to have him/her attend unless he/she is sick.
This year I hope to teach your child many things and also leave him/her
with many pleasant memories.
