Third Grade Track 1
Hello and welcome to third grade! I am excited to work with you and your child this year! It’s going to be a year full of fun, learning and lots of adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us! I thought you would like to know a little bit about me.
I was born and raised in Pennsylvania but for the past 11 years have called North Carolina home. I went to Penn State University where I earned my degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology. I returned to school in 2008 and earned my degree in Elementary Education from East Carolina University. I began teaching in the fall of 2011 and have loved every minute of it!
This will be my fifth year teaching third grade and my first year at Olive Chapel! For the past four years, I have taught at Carpenter! I have taught fifth and first grade, but third is by far my favorite! It is my mission to instill a love of learning in all my students. I attempt to teach with a passion so that my students develop a desire to become life-long learners. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is so important to keep communication open between us and I would love to talk whenever you feel the need. I look forward to a great year together!
