Mrs. Allyson Schnurbusch

 

Hello APS families! My name is Allyson Schnurbusch and I love teaching first grade here at APS. I am blessed beyond measures to be teaching here this year. I feel so welcomed and I absolutely love it! I have 12 brilliant bumble bees in my first grade classroom that make me smile every day. 

I graduated from SEMO in 2013 and have taught 1st grade for 5 years. I’m very happy to continue on that first grade journey with these excellent students. I married my husband, Jake in 2016 and we have a little boy named Silas who will be 2 years old next month. I have several nieces and nephews as well. I love spending time with our family whenever we can. Silas really enjoys playing outside with his cousins. If he is doing anything outdoors, he is one happy kid. Watching him grow and learn is so much fun! I can also say the same about my students. 

Speaking of my students, I’d like to take some time to share some awesome things they have done so far this school year. We started the year off with discussing the importance of kindness. I read a story about being kind to others, we shared ideas, and sprinkled kindness by making donuts with sprinkles… No they weren’t real, but they enjoyed the paper craft anyway. They also wrote about how they can be kind. They did a great job with this activity!

We have been working on our addition and subtraction skills in math, exploring  the states of matter and energy in science, learning about good citizenship, rules, laws, and voting in social studies, reading lots of books, and practicing our handwriting.  I am so proud of my students!

This school year has started off nicely and I look forward to the rest of it!
