Ms. Cathleen Byers

       Teaching is an absolute passion of mine.  I am so excited to work with you and your child.  It's going to be a year full of fun, learning and lots of adventures!  I cannot wait to see what the year has in store for us!  I thought you might like to know a little about me.

       I am in my 26th year of teaching.  I taught Third Grade for 17 years before moving to First Grade.  I spent six years teaching First Grade.  Although I enjoyed teaching First Grade I begain to miss teaching the older students.  It was then that I decided that I would like to go back to teaching near the age I began my career with.  I am beyond excited to be teaching Fourth Grade! 

       I have five fabulous children ranging from twenty-three to thirteen years in age.  They take up most of my free time, but some of my hobbies are jewelry making, crocheting, reading and crafting.  My favorite color is red and I love candles!

       My mission is to instill a love for learning in my students.  I attempt to teach with a passion for my subject so that my students develop a desire to become life-long learners.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  It is important to keep communication open between us and I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need. I look forward to a great year together!
