"Every child is someone else's whole world!"
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 firstname.lastname@example.org

Week of Feb. 27th
We are beginning our next chapter on fractions. I have a lot fun activities planned. We will begin learning about equivalent fractions and putting fractions into simplest form. We will create equivalent fraction puzzles and learn a new song called "Simplfy Me." Students should be studying times tables every night. They should already be mastered upon entering grade four.
The next unit will be on plants. We will complete a lab using celery and after February break begin to plan in our class planter.
We will finish our unit on the first commandment. We will also begin our Lenten activities. Students will be keeping a Lenten calendar. We will also begin a writing piece on what Lent means to us. 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.
