Welcome to Fourth Grade!

Greetings and welcome to the 2016-2017 school year. Fourth grade is a fun and exciting time! We read novels and learn different ways to analyze a story in Reading. In Math, we'll be learning about fractions and decimals. We will learn about the different regions of the United States in Social Studies. And we'll be classifying animals and doing lots of experiments in Science! All this and we have 2 leopard spotted geckos that live in our classroom.

I am looking forward to this year and cannot wait to share with you all our accomplishments.

A little about me...

I graduated from Benedictine University in 2006 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I am currently working on my Master's Degree. I have been teaching at St. Catherine-St. Lucy for the past 7 years. This is the first and only school I have taught at! In addition, I have been married for 24 years and have 4 children who range in age from 23 to 16.
