    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I am excited to be your teacher this year. Fourth grade is a fun year. I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself and the fourth grade.

    This will be my 8th year teaching. I have taught 5th, 4th, 2nd, and 3rd grade here at Jane Ball. I have my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, and graduated from Purdue University Calumet (now call Northwest.) Some of my favorite things include hanging out with family and friends, reading, going to Target, and Dunkin' Donuts. This past summer, Mr. Bulthuis and I had our first child, James. With that being said, I will be taking a maternity leave until November 4th. Mrs. Lopez will be in my room until then. 

    Fourth grade can seem challenging, but with hard work and determination we can make it! This year we as a class we will continue to become independent thinkers and students. Responsibility is the name of the game, and I will be encourage your child to be responsible for his or her work and actions. I am looking forward to a productive and fun school year. I hope to work with each of you as partners in your child’s education.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via e-mail or ClassDojo (this is the easiest way to reach me). If you would like to talk via phone, I am generally available from 7:30-8:00 a.m. and 3:30-4:00 p.m.  If you leave me a message I will do my best to return your call as soon as possible. I hope to speak with each of you soon as we get to know each other and embark on an educational and exciting school year!
