Fourth Grade Math and Science
Welcome to fourth grade! I am so excited to begin a new school year with such a wonderful group of students. Many of you know me previously as Miss Jackson when I taught first grade. I married my husband, Chris, in the summer of 2017. I gained two amazing stepdaughters, Lilly and Olivia. Lilly will be in first grade this school year and Olivia is beginning kindergarten. We are so excited to explore these adventures with them. Summer was so much fun, but it is that time again to get back to the routine of school. I hope everyone enjoyed their summer vacations and time with family, I cannot wait to hear all about them!
I am honored to teach some of my old students again this year as well as meet new faces as we dive into fourth grade math and science. We will work hard and be challenged, but also have a lot of fun. The fourth grade team does an awesome job at working together so that all students are on the same page with schedules, behavior models, homework, and teaching philosophy. Expect to learn, but learning can only take place through practice. You will have nightly math homework Monday through Thursday. I try my very hardest to give you every weekend to relax and have fun like the 9 and 10 year olds that you all are. Weekends are for family time, sports, and recharging.
I look forward to gaining new experiences with all of my students and their families throughout the school year. At anytime you may e-mail me. I often check my e-mails after dinner in the evenings to help answer questions about homework. I will also be using the Remind App to give daily math assignments for both classes, give weekly reminders, and post PTG events. Your child should be writing down nightly homework in a planner if needed or adding it to an electronic calendar/note on their Chromebooks. You can reach me at Sauder ext. 5129. I return phone calls around 3:45 after students have been dismissed onto buses. Open communication is key to success, so please use me as a resource!
