Welcome to third grade and the 2014-15 school year! I am extremely excited to spend this important and exciting year with you and your child. I view the educational process as a 3 way partnership between teacher, parent and child. With your support we can work together to help your child become a life long learner both educationally and emotionally.

I designed this website to foster communication between school and home. I hope you gain a better understanding of the happenings and events in our third grade classroom. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have about your child.

Parent/Teacher Poem
(by Ray A. Lingenfelter)

I dreamed I stood in a studio
and watched two sculptors there,
the clay used was a young child's mind
and they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher;
the tools she used were books and music and art;
one was a parent with a guiding hand
and a gentle loving heart.
And when at last their work was done
they were proud of what they had wrought
for the things they had worked into the child
could never be sold or bought.
And each agreed she would have failed
if she had worked alone
for behind the parent stood the school,
and behind the teacher stood the home.

Who would have ever thought that
we would have made national news last year!
