Welcome to the 2011/2012 school year. I am so excited about teaching a 4/5 grade combination. I have taught a 2/3, 3/4 and a 4/5 combination in the past, so I feel confident in my abilities to maintain a positive constructive learning environment for our class this year.
Look for a challenging and interesting year. If there are any questions, concerns or fears please call or email me.
If you are interested in working in the classroom this year please let me know. There are several opportunities available.
I will be sending home a Request for Information letter along with other important papers. Please fill them out and send back as soon as possible.
I will keep you informed through email and website.
