As a parent, I am sure that you are always looking for ways to inspire your child(ren) to learn! I’m not just talking about learning to study or take notes or learning to memorize the answers for a test.

Inspiring real learning is lighting a fire, a thirst for new ideas and information. Real learning is a creative process that’s hard to nail down but amazing to see when it happens!

The awesome (and super difficult) thing about learning is that every child is different.  What works for one child may do nothing for another child.  Sorting through that process as a parent and a teacher can be daunting but is so worth it!

As your child’s teacher, I intend to be a part of the team of helping your child learn to the best of his/her ability.  Yes, students will learn how to take notes, study for a test, and take a test.  However, I also want to enrich the learning experience by encouraging curiosity, creativity, problem solving, and hands-on experiences.

Please know that I have your child’s best interest at heart.  With that in mind, let’s work as a team to help your child have a GREAT learning experience in third grade.  You are welcome to contact me by email with any questions or concerns as we “row through the year in the same boat.”
