Mrs. Effinger - Room 110


I am excited about our journey together! I believe in helping each and every student become successful and reach their highest potential. I am committed to helping your child achieve academically and emotionally, through research-based instructional strategies, critical thinking, inquiry, service learning, project-based learning, hands-on experience, as well as teaching in a way that makes sense to your child’s learning style.

I will provide a safe and nurturing environment where learning is made fun, expectations are set high, made clear, and mistakes are new discoveries. Each student will learn the skills to become a well-rounded citizen in and out of the classroom so that they become knowledgeable and contributing members of society. Students will have the right to apply, analyze, and reflect on knowledge constructed within the classroom that is driven by them.

I also believe in making sure that we develop a trusting relationship, positive self-esteem/confidence, tools for navigating through their emotions and friendships and developing a growth mindset. It is such a great feeling when you work hard to achieve a goal, whether it be academic or social! We can do it together!

Our classroom will be structured, but also full of life, learning, and fun! I look forward to working with you as a team to make this a great third-grade year!
