Mr. Jarrod Lorenz
Hey, Greenway 3rd grade families! I am Mr. Lorenz and I will be your student's 3rd Grade Math and Science teacher for the 2015-2016 school year. I can't express just how excited I am to welcome you to my classroom and help my students achieve their full academic and social potential. This is my fourth year teaching at Greenway and my second year teaching 3rd grade. I have also taught 1st grade, 5th grade, and Kindergarten.
I fully believe that EVERY child can learn and that each student has their own individual way of maximizing their learning. As their teacher, I will work to help each student discover what learning styles work best for them and help them to reach their goals. 3rd grade is a pivotal year in a student's life and I want my classroom to be a source of comfort and consistency so the students feel safe, confident, and eager to learn new, challenging skills that will be a life-long benefit.
Also, I fully believe that communication and understanding between school and home is a vital part of a student's success. When we (teacher and parent) work together, it shows our student that their education is important and meaningful to us as well.
You can always reach me via phone (352-671-4845) and e-mail (email@example.com) for any questions or concerns. I am available Monday - Friday to meet in the morning before school (6:50AM - 7:15AM) or I am available Monday and Friday only to meet after school (2:15PM - 3:00PM) for parent conferences if you would like to meet in person. I am not available to meet after school on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday due to prior school-based obligations.
