Welcome to Third Grade

Hello, Third Grade Families!

This will be a year of practicing patience and thinking on our feet as we navigate all the unknowns.  What I do know is kids are resilient and learning will happen in one form or another.  I also know I am looking forward to getting to know your child and your family and being part of the Third Grade Journey! 

This is my 12th year teaching third grade. My husband and I have had the joy (and challenge) of raising two sons and a couple of dogs.  We love to laugh, golf, camp, travel, read and play cards.  Though my husband would beg to differ, I am awesome at five out of six of those things. :) 

Learning involves:

  • Best effort
  • Knowing mistakes are opportunities to learn
  • Applying a growth mindset when things get hard
  • Regular feedback between the student and me
  • Multiple chances to practice and demonstrate proficiency 

Getting along involves:

  • Mutual respect
  • Lifting each other up
  • Celebrating accomplishments
  • Taking responsibility
  • Owning mistakes
  • Making apologies
  • Forgiveness

Thanks for visiting the website.  Feel free to always contact me with any questions or concerns.
