First Grade

Students Standing in a Line with Backpacks

Welcome to 1st Grade! This year promises to be another sensational year of learning and discovering! We are so glad to come together as Morris Hill Panthers with pride in their efforts! This year we are learning about science, engineering, reading, writing, math, and technology! We can’t wait to watch our First Graders grow!

Ms. Sylvester: This is my second half of my first year in 1st grade at Morris Hill Elementary. I was born and raised in the Manhattan area. I graduated from Kansas State University and I am currently working towards a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. I love spending time with my dog, family, friends, and crafting. I have a passion for teaching and am excited to see what amazing things your students will accomplish this year in first grade.

Ms. Evans: My name is Katharin Evans and I am currently in my 5th year of teaching. I graduated from Oklahoma City University with my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. I spent two years teaching 4th grade in Oklahoma and two years teaching 3rd grade at Fort Carson. I taught third grade for the first half of the 2021-2022 school year before moving to teaching 1st grade at Fort Riley! When I’m not teaching I enjoy working out, shopping or getting brunch.
