Welcome to third grade! I am very excited to have your student in my class this year. Throughout the year I hope to get to know each of you! Nonetheless, I would like to tell you a little about myself. I come from a small town in middle Georgia known as Butler. I come from a family of educators. My mother is a retired teacher with over 30 years of experience, my sister is a professor on the university level, and my father is a school counselor. I graduated with Bachelors in Early Childhood Education and have a certification in Early Childhood Education. This is my fourth year at Emma Hutchinson Elementary. Recently, I graduate from Georgia State University with a specialist degree in Early Childhood Education. In college I was able to play football and baseball. I was a three year letterman at my undergraduate university. I believe that a true partnership is needed between the school, home, and community for a student to reach optimal success. My classroom doors are always open and you are welcome to visit at anytime to observe a lesson. However, I am able to meet upon request or appointments. I will be happy to answer any questions and concerns please feel free to contact me. I am confident that we are going to have a great year and will work together to provide your student with the best education we can.

In our class not every assignment that is sent home will have points given for it, but students will get participation points for doing each assignment. I do understand that there are extenuating circumstances and it is sometimes hard for students to get homework done every night. To help with this each student will be allowed two late homework papers each semester without penalty. These must be turned in the next day. I will keep track of these and let students know when they have used up all of their late paper privileges. All other late papers will be accepted 1 day late with half credit given and no credit given after that.
In Class Assignments
Students will be expected to complete individual assignments during class. They will be given ample time to complete these assignments. Any student who does not complete an assignment during the time given will be asked to complete their assignment during lunch or specials. If the assignment was given after lunch of the day and is not completed in the time given it will be placed on the student’s desk the next morning to be completed AFTER their morning work for that day. If it is not completed at this time they will miss lunch and/or specials. If students fails to complete the assignment they will be given an F. I DO NOT send unfinished work home to be completed unless it is due to an absence.
This year expectations for AR are pretty much the same as in past years. Each quarter students will have a point goal, a percent correct goal, and a reading level goal. I require that students meet ALL three goals in order to meet their goal for the quarter and attend the AR party. This expectation helps students to read not only for points, but also to work on their comprehension of stories and making sure they are reading books that are “just right” for them.
