It is with much anticipation that I begin my sixth year teaching fourth grade at Thornton. Responsibility, respect and organization are key components to my classroom. These foster independence which leads to a more student-led environment and, in turn, more meaningful learning experiences.

I have two main goals this year. First, I plan to incorporate more student-based research, which I hope will promote a love of reading to learn. Providing students with the tools and strategies to learn about high-interest topics and create a variety of projects to present the information is something we will strive towards. Second, problem solving in math will be filled with real world challenges. I want my students to know that math is not a subject in school, but rather an integral part of life.

With these goals in mind, I eagerly await another exciting school year in which I witness my students grow in every sense of the word.
