All About Rylan

Hi, my name is Rylan Stewart! I am so excited to be teaching 1st grade this year. This is my twelfth year teaching in Santa Clara. One of my most favorite things is travel. I have traveled all over the world. Each year, I like to plan my next adventure! In my spare time, I enjoy being outside hiking, reading a good book, swimming in the pool or ocean, and spending time with family and friends. My husband, Andrew, and I have 3 awesome pets (2 cats and a dog) named Hobbes, Gizmo, and Winchester!


First grade students go to the library every Tuesday. Please make sure your child brings their library book with them to school on Tuesdays so that they may check out a new book.


Book Bags


Practice reading every night from your book bag. It is expected that students read for 20 minutes nightly. They need to be brought back to school every day. Students go book shopping once a week and will be reading with teacher 2-3 times a week in small group or will be conferring with their teacher.  Please take care of books and treat them with respect.

Tuesday, August 28th: Back to School Night


We had a wonderful first two days of school. Our E-6 first graders are learning all about each other and our classroom. Over the next few weeks, we will learn about our school and classroom rules. We will also start Reader's and Writer's workshop. On Friday, students made dolls that represent them. We also learned a 1st grade chant!
