Welcome to Ms. Chinnock's First Grade Class!
Hi, I am Ms. Chinnock! I grew up in Chesapeake, VA and attended Hickory High School. Later I went on to ODU for my Bachelor's in Education and I obtained a Master's in Education from Liberty University. I have taught in Hampton, Va in 5th grade for 1 year and Pre-K for 2 years. My husband is Active Duty Navy and received orders for WA state where I taught kindergarten for 3 years. We moved back here in 2018 and will be here at least until he retires. This is my second year at Moyock Elementary teaching first grade.
My son Jack is also in first grade this year and my daughter Ellie is 2. When I'm not teaching, I like to read, go to the beach, parks, and be with my family.
Teaching kids to read is my passion. I feel if I cannot get your student to at least like reading by second grade, they will probably never like to read. I try to instill a joy for reading in all of my students every year. If I accomplish nothing else this school year, my goal is to make every child a confident reader who reads for fun.
