• Welcome to Third Grade!

     

    I am so excited to start this year with all of you! Together, we will be interacting with new content through hands-on and enagaing activites, creating memories and forming friendships along the way! My goal is to create a classroom environement that is positive, fun, and safe for all students to think critically, take risks, and encourage one another as we learn together! 

     

    Ready, Set, Grow!!

    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
