Welcome to our 4th-grade class. We will be learning many new and exciting skills this year. Fourth grade is a year of transition from the development of skills to the development of independence. This is the time for students to begin to assume responsibility for their education and become lifelong learners. 



My job is to teach you how to be the best student you can be.
Your job is to reach out and take advantage of the time you have with me.
