Welcome to 4th Grade!
Hi, my name is Mr. Alfred Chavez Junior, and I am happy to be teaching another wonderful 4th grade class this year. This is my 14th year teaching and my 10th year teaching at Hatchett Elementary School. I am a firm believer in the power of education. Not only do I appreciate the opportunity of teaching America's youths, I also enjoy teaching writing to University of Phoenix students. This year will be my eighth year teaching university students. As an educator of children and adults, I have seen first hand what an education can do for a person. An education can open up minds and hearts, two important qualities needed to be successful and happy in life.
Now that I have told you a little about myself, I hope you all had a fun and relaxing Summer. This year is going to be great. Not only are we going to learn 4th grade material but we are also going to have fun while we learn about reading, writing, building, coloring, etc. Coloring? Yes, I did say "coloring." Learning important stuff does not have to be boring; it can be an adventure.
Under the documents tab, you will find the up-to-date class news-letter and other important information. Please read the news-letter in order to stay current on what is happening in the classroom.
