A Little About Me

     Welcome to first grade at Roosevelt Elementary. My name is Amy Truchan (pronounced TRUE-SH-ON). I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. This will be my 23rd year of teaching at Roosevelt but my tenth year at teaching first grade. I have taught kindergarten for 11 years and 2nd & 4th at the beginning of my teaching career.

I grew up and attended elementary through college here in Livonia. I worked at Jackson Center for four years right out of high school. I've been married for twenty years. I adopted 2 adorable but mischievous cats (Sherby & Kingsley) that are now 3 years old and are truly like raising children. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your family as well.

Sherby & Kingsley

School Year 2017-18

Halloween Party Food Donation

Please click on this link to sign up to donate an item. We will be playing a game, cutting up apples (1 apple per 2 kids) with caramel syrup, and then making these vampire cookies below.

Here will be the link to my Google Doc where you can sign up to volunteer in the classroom. Simply click on the title above (when I open it), then at the bottom of the page, pick the desired month tab. Type your name in the box next to the date you choose, wait a few seconds for it to be saved and you're done. You'll notice I have the activity listed that you will do that day. All of these activities will be done in small groups or 1-on-1 in the hallway. Sometimes you'll only work with a few kids on that day verses the whole class. Math games will always be the whole class. I picked 2 days a week for that since most games take time & can't be completed in one day. "Misc" can be doing various things with students, an art project, or doing a task for me. Thanks for you support in advance!
