Welcome to My Third Grade Classroom

First quarter is an exciting time in Third Grade.  For this quarter, we are working on advanced addition and subtraction with regrouping using various strategies.  We also are endeavoring to solve rigorous problems with multiple steps, which is a skill we will reinforce throughout the year.
In Reading, we are asking and answering questions about characters and plot n fictional texts, and we are discovering text features in informational texts.
I writing, we are drafting, editing, and sharing personal narratives.  In Science, we are furthering our understanding of the human body's systems and the growth and development of plants.

College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:
BA in English from Davidson College, class of 2002
Teacher Licensure from UNC Charlotte
AmeriCorps Education Specialist and School Team Leader (2002-2004)

Educational Philosophy/Vision:
My educational philosophy is to provide an environment in which my students can succeed, and to hold them accountable for their learning.  As teacher, student, and parent, we are a team, and the student's success is our team goal.

What you can do at home:

  • Encourage your child to read for at least 20 minutes each night.
  • Have your child complete their nightly homework which should be turned in by Friday.
  • Ask your child about TQPSA and how it can help with answering questions about reading passages.
  • Ask your child about CUBES and how it can help with answering math word problems.
  • Encourage your child to use MobyMax or Dreambox at home on a tablet or computer. This is a fun way for them to continue their learning at home!
