    Please let me know, through email above, it you have questions or need new materials.  I have been checking my email daily, so if I miss you one day, I'll respond the next.

    About me...

       I call La Conner Elementary my second home, because I have taught my entire career right here!  I have been lucky enough to have taught several grades and groups of students including kindergarten, first grade, resource room, a fourth-fifth grade split class, and fourth grade. It's fourth grade that I most enjoy!
       Each new year brings change and excitement.  Not only do I get to meet and work with a new group of students, I learn more in workshops and classes to implement each year.
       I feel very fortunate to have a job that I thoroughly enjoy!  



    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year.

    Fourth grade is an exciting year of growth and change! 

    Here is a brief overview of the interesting topics we study.

    In Reading, the curriculum , ReadyGen will be used:  Students will read a wide variety of literature from various genres.  Comprehension, skills, vocabulary, and fluency strategies will be the focus.

    In Writing:  In addition to grammar development, students will compose in the opinion, narrative, and expository modes of writing. 

    In Math, Math Expressions is used:  Multiplication and division are the focus of fourth grade.  Students will use these operations to problem solve in the strands of number sense, algebra, probability and statistics, geometry, and measurement.

    In Social Studies, the text, Discovering Washington is used:  Students will study the state in which they live!  Washington State geography and history are the focus.

    In Science, a variety of materials will be used.  Mystery Science is used to teach about the human body and sound.  Fourth graders will also explore how to be stewards of The Salish Sea!
