This is my 18th year teaching and my seventh year at Notre Dame. I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl playing school with my Grandpa. I am the mommy to my beautiful 4 year old daughter, Gianna. I am looking forward to an exciting year sharing in both your child's educational and spiritual growth. If you have any questions or concerns, you can email me at email@example.com

Week of April 10th
We have had a fun week of geometry. We learned about quadrilaterals and did a quadrilateral roll. We also created symmetrical pictures using pattern blocks. These came out amazing!! This week, we will begin studying angles more in depth. We will measure and draw angles using protractors. Students should be studying times tables every night. They should already be mastered upon entering grade four.
We learning about force and motion. We conducted a ball and ramp lab using different types of spheres and the distance they would roll from various heights. The class loved this. Our bean seeds are really beginning to sprout.
We will finish learning about Lent and the Triduum. They will also listen to the "Legend of the Easter Egg." We watched the video from Bishop Barres where he showed students his card. He asked students. "What would be on your card?" Students will be creating their own cards similar to Bishop Barres' card. They should bring in their quote for the card on Monday, April 10th. Students should also begin looking for extra credit articles on "Good Samaritans." This will count as extra credit.We also have a class prayer board. Every Monday, students will write on a post it who they would like to pray for and post it to the prayer board. We will then begin chapter one.
