Hello and Welcome to third grade!
What an exciting adventure we have ahead of us! As we begin our partnership in education, I want to share a little bit about me, my mission, and goals as your child’s third grade teacher. I've been teaching for eight years. I've taught kindergarten, second grade and third grade. I am married and we have two dogs. We've been married for seven years and have no children (other than our furry kids). We love to travel, bike ride and hang out with our family. I have a pretty big family and we are very close. My mom will visit and help from time to time. All of my sisters live out of state. A cool fact is I have an identical twin sister. I'm excited to be joining the Falcon team.
I look forward to a great year ahead of us! Please know my ultimate goal is to help your child learn in a variety of ways and in a safe and fun environment.
Every day I will greet your children with enthusiasm, model a positive attitude, and treat them with respect in a fair, giving, and caring manner. I will recognize their strengths, reward their efforts, and reinforce their achievements. I will encourage them to try their best, believe in themselves, and never give up. I will help them develop a sense of high self-esteem by teaching them to take responsibility for their actions, solve problems appropriately, and be good citizens. I will empower my students with an “I can do it!” attitude so they can reach their maximum potential and be the best they can be.
