Hello! I am thrilled to be here and ready for another school year. My name is Michelle DeLaMotte and I’m so excited to be your child’s first grade teacher.
I am an El Paso native and a third generation UTEP graduate. I have 3 children of my own. My oldest daughter Taylor is 24 years old, my son Cody is 20 and they both attend UTEP. We also have a little girl named Lindsay and she is starting third grade. We are learning new things in our home daily with our children. This is my 18th year teaching and learning. I have taught kindergarten-3rd grade. As a teacher, I am dedicated to helping each child reach his/her highest potential and highest level of success.
Welcome to 1A! I would like to welcome you and your child to first grade. I hope that your child will have a wonderful year of learning and growing. I would like to give you some information about expectations, schoolwork, and classroom policies. I hope that you will find this helpful.
