|Position:||Secondary Art Teacher|
In the immortal words of Ron Burgundy: “I’m kind of a big deal.”
Well, maybe not, but I am a pretty good teacher, and I am so pleased to be once again teaching my favorite grade level: 4th!
Fourth graders are right at that sweet spot where their individuality starts to shine through and you can catch glimpses of the amazing adult they will become, while also maintaining the qualities that are so special in a child. They are also very inquisitive, and soak up knowledge like a sponge. It is very exciting to be a part of this pivotal time in their education.
This year, you should expect your child to be held to high academic and social standards. Success in my class will take dedication, responsibility, and hard work. Success will be earned. However, we will also have a lot of fun along the way. I promise!
I know I have an exceptional group of students this year, and I cannot wait to dive into the school year!
