    I am so excited to be working with your child and your family this year! Expectations in third grade are a lot greater than in previous grades, and more responsibility will be placed on your child. Please know, that while I have high expectations, my main priority next to teaching academics is to prepare your child for the rigors of fourth and fifth grade. 

     As an educator, I am passionate about providing a learning environment that not only guides students towards academic achievement, but one that also helps to create strong, successful members of our community.

     Here are a few important philosophies that I hold: 

    • I believe strongly in school-home communication. Both you as parents and myself as the teacher are crucial for student achievement and development. 

    • I feel there should be a balance of whole group, cooperative and independent learning, that students can grow and thrive from a combination of these methods. We will use many different learning methods this year. 

    • Technology is an integral part of my classroom. The world our students are growing up in is only becoming more tech-infused and any exposure to technology will be a benefit to them.
