• Image result for welcome to fourth grade 
    I am incredibly excited to start this school year with all of you! Fourth grade is an exciting time where we will learn a variety of new concepts as well as expand on those that students have learned in previous grades. During the year, students will have the opportunity to become more independent through discovery, critical thinking, and hands-on learning activities. I am looking forward to helping each of my students be successful with the challenges that fourth grade has to offer and to enjoy their fourth grade adventure.

    Change Your Words, Change Your Mindset...

    We want to instill a growth mindset in all of our students. What does this mean, you ask?? A growth mindset is where students believe that they are capable of expanding their intelligence and capabilities through hard work and perseverance! We want to praise students for their hard work and encourage them to never give up, even when faced with a challenge. There is no such thing as a "limit" to a child's potential! Even when mistakes are made, there is opportunity for growth. I am excited to help students grow and believe in their incredible abilities this year.

    If you want more information about the growth mindset, this video will give you a great introduction! http://https://youtu.be/NWv1VdDeoRY

    Parents, if you have any questions throughout the year, feel free to email me - howellam@staffordschools.net.  I am enthusiastic for the chance to partner with/continue partnering with you this school year.  Through open communication, we will be able to work together to help our children succeed.
    Fourth graders, I cannot wait to start this journey with you and cannot wait to see how much you sprout and grow!
