Welcome to 1st Grade in Room 12!

About Mrs. Boardman

      Hi!  My name is Dana Boardman and this is my twentieth year of teaching, all of which have been in OPS.  This is my fourteenth year at Picotte.  I spent a few years teaching fourth grade, second grade, and ESL.  I am currently enjoying my thirteenth year as a first grade teacher.  

     I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Master of Science Degree in Reading with an endorsement in English as a Second Language.  When I'm not busy with school I enjoy spending time with my husband Jason, and my two daughters Emma (13) and Eden (9).
