Welcome to First Grade!
About Ms. Dye
I was born in Ohio and grew up in Fairfield with my mom and sister. I attended Fairfield City School District until my tenth grade year and then transferred and graduated from Cincinnati Christian Schools. I went to Cumberland College in Kentucky and graduated with a certification to teach Kindergarten through Eighth grade. Even though I can teach up to Eighth grade, I really like teaching the younger kids. I have been teaching at New Miami Elementary for 15 years and have taught Fourth grade, Third grade, and now I am teaching First grade.
Growing up, we always had "animals that needed a home". We rescued dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, guinea pigs, and rabbits. If there was an animal that needed a home...my mom, sister and I were the ones that usually rescued it. As some of my past students will tell you, my classroom usually always had a few "rescued" animals that the class got to help take care. The animals helped teach responsibility, compassion, and respect. Some of the classroom pets that I have had were frogs, hamsters, fish, lizards, a rat, a guinea pig, and countless number of hissing cockroaches. Since getting married, I have had to cut back on the number of pets and the kind of pets I was rescuing. Let's just say, my husband wasn't real sure about me bringing home the hissing cockroaches for Christmas vacation. In June of 2013, I had a little boy.
