     Reading and Math!
    Welcome to my homepage for Language Arts and Math.  We are just at the beginning of what is sure to be a busy and exciting year!
     I am looking forward to beginning our Language Arts and/or Math classes this year! We will have the opportunity to work in small groups, using differentiated instruction to best meet the learning needs of everyone. Our curriculum will focus on combining basic skills learning and practice with higher-level thinking skills. Individual and cooperative learning activities will promote independence as well as group cooperation and exchange of ideas.
    Each week I will post a review of classroom activities on my Classroom News page. On the Homework page, you will find a list of current assignments. Please take a moment to read my "Getting To Know Me" page, so you can "meet" me before the school year begins! You can visit the websites of your  other teachers to find information specific to that class and/or homeroom. 
    I am predicting a wonderful school year in 2018-19! Please feel free to ask an adult to contact me via email or phone with any questions, comments, or concerns.
