Hello First Grade Families!
I am excited for the year ahead. We will be learning so many new things, we will make new friends, and learn wonderful things about one another along the way.
This will be my fifth year at Blue Heron and my third year in first grade. A fun trivia fact about me...I have taught every grade level kindergarten through sixth grade. I won't tell you how long I have been teaching because it's a lot of years! 🙂
I love buying children's books, collecting rocks, and I truly enjoy an adventure no matter how big or small. Time with my family has become even more important to me as my own children head off on their own paths to college and beyond. 
I look forward to our adventure this year! It's going to be amazing!

Welcome to Ms. Boykin's Class
I went back to school to get my teaching license and masters degree in 2011 after having two young sons and working in the corporate world for seven years out of college. I've taught fourth grade for a year, first grade for three years, and kindergarten for the past seven years. I love seeing the growth of the young students and nourishing their excitement for learning so I'm very excited to join the first grade team at Blue Heron!
