• Welcome to 3rd Grade!!

    I am so excited to be your child's 3rd grade teacher this year!  Third grade is a year full of growth, both academically and socially.  This is my second year teaching 3rd grade at Norterra Canyon, but it is my 19th year teaching.  I've taught in several districts in Arizona and California.  I've also taught Kinder, 1st, 3rd and 4th grades.  We will focus on building a classroom community where students feel cared for and valued.  

    Our classroom mission statement:

    The 3rd graders in room 409 will respect one another and our classroom.  We will treat one another with kindness.  We will come prepared and ready to learn each day.  We will help one another and listen attentively.  We will be honest and fair with each other.
