Welcome to room #110! My name is Larry Tifft and I am glad to have your child in my class. I grew up in a small town in Iowa called Nora Springs, which is about ten miles east of Mason City. In 1989, I graduated from the U of M with a degree in Speech Communications. After working for several years, I decided to become a teacher and attended weekend college at the College of St. Catherine. I graduated from there in 1996. I have been teaching first grade at Northrop since February 1998. Some of my hobbies include travelling, comic book collecting, and listening to music.
First grade is a very exciting
First graders will learn about family diversity. We will discuss how families are the same and different.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at Larry.Tifft@mpls.k12.mn.us or call me at school 612-668-4520.
Homework for 1st grade is sent home every Monday. Students have one week to complete the homework. Homework is due by the following Monday.
Homework will usually include a book at your child's level along with a worksheet about the story, writing practice, and math practice.
