Welcome to Third Grade! I look forward to an enjoyable year with you and your child. Although I am in my 22nd year here at Birches, I promise you, I am young at heart! I am eager to make learning fun for third graders! With a background in musical theater, I try to incorporate music and activity throughout our day, while still using a variety of strategies to reach our goals. I recognize that parent support is such a crucial element to a successful year. Please feel free to contact me to help make your child's learning experience positive. Your support is greatly appreciated!
