  • Welcome to First Grade!


    Hello and welcome to our first grade web page!  My name is Mike Fohringer and I have been teaching in the Mifflinburg Area School District since 1996. I have been a First Grade Teacher since 1997. I am a 1995 graduate of Lock Haven University with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I currently live in Mifflinburg with my wife and two children.


    First Grade is a big year for students. They make great academic and social gains throughout their First Grade year. To make this happen we work very hard each and every day towards becoming strong readers and great problem solvers in math as well as great writers. We work very hard to build a classroom community that each student feels comfortable and safe in while learning. We also work hard to make students feel comfortable so that they are willing to take risks and try new things without the fear of making a mistake.


    We will work very hard this year but we will also have lots of fun. I am really looking forward to working with all the students in my class this year. I look forward to getting to know them and their families. Parents are an extremely important part of a child's educational experience and I look forward to working with you as well. I hope your child has a great year! If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to let me know.
