Degrees and Certifications:
Greetings 4th Grade Families! This is my second year teaching fourth grade here at Concord Road. Previously I taught second grade in New York City.
We are going to have a fantastic year in fourth grade as we build upon all our hard work from K-3 and reach new heights in our last year at Concord Road. Throughout the year we will be working hard to develop strong critical thinkers, active readers, powerful writers, and brilliant mathematicians. In addition to taking ownership of our impendent learning we will be focusing on collaboration with peers as we collectively discuss, solve, and create solutions to the challenges of the fourth grade curriculum.
Our classroom is a curious classroom because a curious mind is a productive one. It is a safe space where we are going to encourage student driven ideas and questions. We will celebrate our mistakes and discover learning opportunities in wrong answers. We will discover "The Power of Yet" and find ways to push past "I don't know." Our students will build each other up and take ownership of our vibrant classroom culture we create.
I'm thrilled to be leading this class on the fantastic journey that is fourth grade.
