• Welcome! I am ecstatic about the opportunity to get to know your third grader at McDowell this year. In our classroom, we will:

    • solve problems
    • ask questions and seek answers creatively
    • think outside of the box
    • have fun
    • be kind
    • work hard and persevere
    • challenge ourselves and one another
    • revise and improve our ideas
    • overcome obstacles
    • become self-motivated
    • grow into lifelong learners

    I would love to help motivate your child to reach his full potentail. Every student deserves to experience success and to be noticed for her strengths. I hope that, throughout third grade, students gain confidence in themselves and realize that they can make a difference in the world!
