Helping Hands Club will be meeting after school today (Tuesday) in my classroom, room 9.  I’m so excited to see returning members and new group members who want to help our school, our community, and our world!  I’m looking forward to our upcoming projects and hope you are too!  I can’t wait for everyone to use their helping hands in amazing ways this year!

Welcome Back!

Even as a teacher, I still get those back to school butterflies in my tummy, so I know just how you feel 4th graders!  I am so excited to start another wonderful year at Avoca!  This is my 5th year as the 4th Grade Learning Resource Teacher, but if I really counted all of my years in the Avoca School District, it would be 23!  (I started at Avoca in kindergarten and went all the way through New Trier, so I’ve really been around for a really long time!)

Hopefully you’ll find some helpful tips on this blog as well as a glimpse into all the fun we have in 4th Grade. I hope that everyone has an awesome start to the year!
