Welcome to 4th Grade! Our hope is that this year will be a positive and exciting continuation of your child's educational experience. Fourth grade is an exciting year that will focus on technology and 21st Century learning skills.
This year will go so quickly and as we begin this journey together, please know that we are partners and I am happy to answer any questions and concerns you may have along the way. I am a teacher who believes in the partnership of parents, students and teachers and together we can make this an amazing learning year! I am also a teacher who believes 100% in your child's potential to learn and thrive in school.
