Thank you, parents, for your tremendous support of the work that goes on in our classroom. Our students work to learn so much in fourth grade, and you are an integral part of your child's success. I look forward to continuing to meet with each of you to discuss your child's academic grown and tailor specific goals for their needs.

I truly enjoy working with every student in our class. This is a wonderful group of kids who each bring unique gifts to our classroom community. As an educator I like to focus on each student’s individual strengths as they continue to develop the skills required for success.

Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,
