Welcome to third grade! I am looking forward to a great year together. This is my nineteenth year teaching with ten years teaching outside Tennessee. I have taught in California, North Carolina and in upstate New York. I have two sons who married two beautiful women, and they all live here in Clarksville. I am blessed to be a grandmother to a precious little girl and I love spending my time with her. I also have a Golden Retriever named Bailey. My husband has retired from the Army so we decided this was where we would build our happily ever after. I love teaching and am blessed to be a part of your child’s life.

MATH UNIT 1 Test will be August 26th.  It will cover addition, subtraction, rounding, patterns and solving two step word problems.  We are working hard each day to master these skill.  Weekly homework will help them practice.  I will send home a set of exit tickets that can be used to help study for the test Monday.  They are similar to the type of questions that will be on our unit test. 


Unit 2 will be intro to multiplication and division concepts.  We will begin learning our multiplication facts 0-5.  Flashcards and on line practice websites like Xtramath will be used in class and in small group.
