Welcome Message

Welcome to Fourth Grade!

I am very excited to begin our adventure at LIS!

Thank you for the opportunity to work with your student! Fourth grade is a big transition from third grade, and I look forward to seeing the growth both academically and emotionally.

My goal in math is to foster a strong number sense helping students love math and become more confident in their knowledge of the relationship of numbers.

Let the Adventure Begin!!
