Welcome to 4th Grade


    Welcome to 4th grade!  I am delighted to have your child in my class this year. I am looking forward to a very successful year and I know you are too. I have high expectations for your child and I will do all that I can to help your child achieve those expectations.

    My goal is to help your children become responsible students and to instill in them a lifelong love of learning.  I hold high expectations for my students, both in academics and behavior. We will work hard at establishing a classroom atmosphere of respect, cooperation, and compassion.  I expect my students to come to class each day with a growth mindset ready to reach their goals.          

    Finally, I would like to express that one of the most important goals this year is to keep our lines of communication open.  Positive and productive communication is paramount to your child’s success! You are essentially my eyes and ears at home and if you notice your child struggling, encourage them to ask me questions either during or after class. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at 540-373-7458 or brizendinenh@staffordschools.net if you have any questions or concerns during the year.
