Welcome to 5B

Welcome to Mrs. Bouchard's class!
 
I am excited about my first year at Saint Christopher Academy. I have a Master's in Education and several years of experience teaching various age groups. I live in Nashua with my husband and two daughters, who attend Saint Chris. Together we like to ride our bikes, play games, and travel. When I am not spending time with my family and friends I enjoy reading, writing, and learning new things.  I look forward to getting to know your children this year.

I am enjoying getting to know each student. They are building friendships, as well as, their academic skills. The students are learning to organize their materials and transition to different classrooms throughout the day. The students are comfortable and confident with the classroom routines.
