Mrs. Alchin

Mrs. Alchin's First Grade Class


Welcome to Mrs. Alchin's class! I am one of three first grade teachers here at Edgemere Elementary.  I graduated from Towson University in 1991 with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education, and from Loyola University with a Master's degree in Special Education.  This will be my 25th year teaching, 11 of which have been in 1st grade here at Edgemere. I have taught Pre-K, 1st grade, 2nd grade and Inclusion. My passion lies in 1st grade!

When I am not teaching, I am spending time with my family.  I live in Edgemere with my husband, daughter and son. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, reading and of course teaching.  My favorite author as a child was Judy Blume. 

Please continue to check back for upcoming news and information and, as always, please feel free to call the school or email with questions or concerns!  Thanks in advance for all of your support in making first grade successful and fun for your learners!  Please read the information below to find out what we'll be doing throughout the year.
