Welcome to First Grade! My name is Catherine Adams and I am very excited to be returning to 1st grade. After graduating from Longwood College, I began my teaching career in 1st grade. For the past 16 years, I have enjoyed teaching a variety of grade levels from Kindergarten to 8th grade. I am returning to Countryside after a brief absense to be a stay at home mom. I am looking forward to a wonderful year together.
