Hello and welcome to Third Grade. I have been busy getting ready for our first day of school. We have an exciting year ahead of us. You will be busy learning many new things in third grade. You will begin cursive writing and memorize multiplication and division facts. You will be a Reading Partner with a 1st grader in Mrs. Bartyzal’s room. This is also your first year taking the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments in Reading and Math. You will take them in April. We will work hard to be ready for these important tests.
This is my thirteenth year teaching in Montgomery. Many years ago I was the Early Childhood teacher here and I have also taught in Medford. I live in the country south of Lonsdale. I have three children, all out of college. Matt, Caite, and Mitch. I spent most of the summer relaxing in our hot tub and reading many books (Reading is my FAVORITE subject). I also went on a road trip to to Tennessee and visited many museums and interesting places. I look forward to telling you all about it. I am excited and ready for the school year to begin.
