Welcome to First Grade! First grade is an exciting year of growth, learning, and gaining independence! At Our Lady of Guadalupe School, we strive to help each student become their best selves by teaching the whole child. In our first grade class, we believe that each student grows at his/her own pace, and that each student can reach their full potential if provided with the right tools. We strive to create an environment that supports individuality and kindness. Students are exposed to an array of activities for all learning styles and are asked to think critically about the world, their religion, their family, and their self.  Our teaching philosophy supports the children and assists them in gaining confidence and independence academically, socially and spiritually. We strive to inspire and encourage each student to be the best they can be!


Hi! My name is Allie Schirripa and I am the first grade teacher here at Our Lady of Guadalupe School. I received my BA degree and my multiple subject teaching credential from California State University Hayward. I have known that I wanted to be a teacher since my first day of kindergarten, so working at OLG as the first grade teacher is truly a dream come true! I absolutely love the eagerness to learn, fun, and laughter that the first graders bring into the classroom everyday.
