Hello, my name is Colleen Phalen and I am delighted to be teaching first grade at Rosa Lee Carter again this year.  This will be my 16th year teaching; in the past I have taught fourth grade, pre-k and English as a Second Language, but I have to confess, first grade is my favorite! 


    I really enjoy working with children and I strive to ensure that each child feels confident, capable and cared for in our classroom. I have four children of my own and understand that parents are the first and most important teachers children have.  I look forward to working with you to ensure your child has a wonderful and successful year in first grade. 
    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  And if you have time, stop by to visit us in the classroom.
