Dear Fourth Grader and Family,
I am extremely excited to be your teacher this year! Wow! Can you believe you are a fourth grader now? In my opinion, fourth grade is the best year! We will be learning about exciting things like light, electricity, motion and simple machines in Science, we will build on the Math skills you have acquired in earlier grades in multiplication, division, fractions, and geometry, in Social Studies we will learn about the American Revolution and Westward Expansion, we will have both a Reading and a Writing Workshop to help us become more effective readers and writers, and lastly, we will delve deeper into our Catholic faith and learn about our Church, the goodness of God, and our role in our Church, our community, and our world. Aren’t you excited now? We have so many more adventures ahead, but I don’t want to spoil all of the surprise!
You may be wondering who I am, so let me share a little bit about myself. I have been teaching since 2003, but I started at Blessed Sacrament Catholic School is 2010. I received my Master’s in Teaching from American University in Washington, D.C. I continue to take classes and workshops to keep my teaching fresh and exciting. (Even teachers go to school!) I grew up in Chevy Chase, Maryland, but moved to Charleston with my husband and daughter in 2009. In 2012, we welcomed a new addition to our family, our son Wyatt. I have enjoyed being a part of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic School community, and I look forward to many years to come.
