My name is Mrs. Omer (formerly Ms. Witte) and I am very excited to be teaching 1st grade again at Tolbert! This will be my seventh year teaching 1st grade. I graduated from Shepherd University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. I also received my Master of Education Degree in Literacy Leadership: K-12 Reading Specialist from George Mason University. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family.
In our class, we will be problem solvers, authors, critical thinkers, readers, and risk-takers. Most importantly, we will have fun building friendships, supporting one another, and create an encouraging class community! I am looking forward to having a great year with the wonderful 1st grade students at Tolbert!
