Welcome to 3rd Grade! This year is going to be wonderful. This will be my sixth year teaching 3rd Grade at Chaparral Elementary and I can't wait! I taught for Virtual Schoolhouse last year and I am so excited to be back in the classroom. I believe that kids learn best when they are enjoying school and doing things that are meaningful to them. We are all going to learn so much this year!
