Our fourth grade team is very excited about the new school year. We call ourselves the Dream Team because we love collaborating with each other to create interesting, motivating lessons and activities for our students. Students in our classrooms are challenged every day not only academically but on a personal basis as well. We believe in fostering a growth mindset in all of our children with the use of student data notebooks and developing their leadership skills with team building exercises and character lessons.
We have five amazing teachers on our team. Ms. Alicea (Track 1) is originally from New York. She is a native Spanish speaker and has been both a regular classroom teacher and a reading specialist. Ms. Trask (Track 4) was born in Pittsburgh and enthusiastically teaches math and science to our students. Ms. Wiedenman (Track 4) was born in Pennsylvania and enjoys teaching our students how to become fantastic readers and writers.
The teachers on our team are as diverse as our students. Our experience levels range from many years to just a few. However, there is one thing that we all have in common – teaching fourth grade is a passion for all of us. Our hope is to inspire a love of learning in all of our students. In doing so, we are providing them with the strategies and skills they will need now and in the future.
