Welcome to 1st Grade! My name is Jayme Faust and I am very excited to be your child's teacher. The 2017-2018 school year will be my fourth year here at Col. Johnston but my tenth year teaching first grade. I am a graduate of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. While there I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. I received my Masters degree in Reading and Literacy in December 2015.
When I am not teaching or working on homework, I enjoy spending time with my husband Robert who works at Black Tower here on Ft. Huachuca and our two boys, Jameson who is six and Grayson who is four. We welcomed our third son, Jaxson in November of 2017. I enjoy traveling with my family, crafting, being outdoors and reading when I can find the time.
I truly love 1st grade as I believe it is a year of substantial growth both academically and socially. I also believe in open communication and truly believe that you and I are a team and it is our job to work together to help your child reach their full potential. One of my goals for your child is to for them LOVE learning. I look forward to working with both you and your child this year!
