Welcome to 3rd Grade!

I am so glad you are here!

Welcome to third grade! I am so grateful for the opportunity to have your child in my class this year. I am looking forward to all of the fun, challenges, and learning that will take place! Together, we will take the foundational skills your student gained in grades K-2 and build upon them to become stronger readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, and world learners! We will work as a team to transition back to in person learning. I cannot wait to watch your child grow academically, socially, and emotionally this year. 

3rd grade is a huge transition from the primary grades (kindergarten-2nd) to the intermediate grades (3rd-5th). WE will spend a lot of time working on developing strong work habits, organizational skills, and increasing student responsibility! I know if we all work TOGETHER that this will be a positive experience. This year will be calm, engaging, and as productive as possible. 

As we go through the school year, I ask you keep the following in mind:

1. Our classroom community will focus on social emotional learning this year, as students make connections and have a sense of belonging in a supportive learning environment. 

2. Please allow me to set high expectations and motivate your child to meet those expectations. Your child is capable of great things!

3. As 3rd graders I will encourage them to take responsibility for their actions. This is such an important skill to learn!

4. In our class we learn that every choice has a consequence which can be positive or negative. We will discuss daily how they are the only one who makes the final decision on what choices they make. 

5. I tell my students every day that they need to "help me help them." In order for this year to be successful they will need to meet me halfway and do their best to pay attention and do their best work!


Please know I am always here for your student. I am dedicating this year to nurturing them, supporting them, loving them, and guiding them. I love teaching and promise to do all I can to help your child grow as much as possible as a third grader!
