Fourth grade is a big transition year for many students. Many things will be new and expectations will be higher. Expectations will grow accordingly throughout the year. There will be challenges placed before you, but none that you cannot conquer. You will see that every challenge and every responsibility that faces you this year, are actually opportunities for growth.
One of the things that I like about our building is that we are small. Other teachers, aides and building staff will get to know your name. We all work together to create a supportive environment for each student that walks through our doors. Our school is cool!
My part of your educational journey is 4th grade, and my goal is to turn a 3rd grader into a 5th grader. Together, we will learn many things on our adventure. Some things will be easier than others, but we will never quit. Fall down three times and get up four. Do this and you will succeed. I'm looking forward to a great journey with you and your parents. See you in class!
