Grade 1 (Miss. Malouin)

Welcome to First Grade! 

My name is Miss Abbie Malouin and I am one of the first grade teachers at Mater Dolorosa!  I am a proud graduate of Westfield State University with a Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Education and a Bachelors of Arts in Theatre Arts and Design.  I am currently enrolled at Elms College for my Masters in Special Education.  We are having such a wonderful time learning in the classroom this year.  Our curriculum is enhanced by unit long projects such as Holidays around the World, Important People who Changed the World and Emotions and Social Skills.  I love being able to see lightbulb moments with my students as they grow in their skills.
