Welcome to First Grade

My name is David Boucher. This is my 1st year teaching first grade. I have taught kindergarten for 8 years at Folwell and prior to that I taught 3rd and 4th grade at Sheridan Global Arts. I have a B.A. from the University of St. Thomas. I also have a Masters of Arts in Elementary Education from Hamline University's Urban Teaching Program. 

I am not only proud, but honored to teach in this great district! I attended Minneapolis Public Schools as a student, for 13 years. I attended Laura Ingalls Wilder, Southeast Free School, and Minneapolis South High. I also have 2 children that graduated from Minneapolis Public Schools.

I am very excited to have the opportunity to be your child’s teacher this year. I believe children learn best when they are engaged in learning. This is done through body movement, music, art and social interaction. I also believe children learn best when they have fun at school and are excited to be there. 

Please feel free to drop by for a visit.
