Karli Hohn, a paraprofessional at Bonner Elementary School, helps laser-focused kindergartner Cohen Johnson find the partially hidden numbers in a book at the school’s Meet the Teacher event on Wednesday, Sept. 7. Meet the Teacher gives students a chance to ease into the first day of classes, said Kelly Carrigan, a first-grade teacher at Bonner. “It establishes their routine right off the bat,” she said. “It’s fun for them to see their desks and their lockers, and know they’ll have their own space.” The event also gives students a chance to talk with their teachers one-on-one, she said.
