Welcome to First Grade! My name is Ginger Walraven and I am honored to be your first grade teacher. This is my ninth year here at Belwood. I taught second grade for three years and this will be my sixth year in first grade. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education from Covenant College.

My husband and I have been married for 17 years and we have three children. Our oldest son is in eleventh grade at Sonoraville High, our daughter is in eighth grade at Sonoraville High, and our youngest son is three.

When I am not teaching or planning awesome things for us to do at school I enjoy reading, working at church, playing with my kids, and spending time with my family and friends. 

I am very excited about the opportunity to work closely with you and your child this year!
