Welcome to The First Grade!

Ms. Sheik's Classroom


My name is Ms. Faisa and I am a first grade teacher. I started my college classes at St Paul technical college, and then I transferred to Metropolitan State University where I received my bachelor’s degree in Urban Education from Metropolitan State University. I chose to become a teacher because teaching makes a difference in the lives of students. I had numerous teachers who instilled a positive experience in my life. One of those teachers taught me reading and math in a fun and exciting way. This is my first year teaching at Minnesota Math and Science Academy. I was a paraprofessional at MMSA for the last three semesters. My favorite part of being a teacher is that I am very excited to have my own classroom and teach first graders. It is fun and exciting teaching first graders. They bring energy and excitement to the classroom. I’m looking forward to an exciting new school year!
