Welcome to third grade! This is an important year of academic and social development. Our year will be filled with many wonderful learning experiences including: Chemical Tests, Rocks Soil and Fossils, Aquatic Life and several great Social Studies units too. In addition, the Language Arts and Math programs provide opportunities for hands on and differentiated instruction and enrichment. We have several field trips planned plus many school and PTA sponsored events will also make this year exciting and rewarding.
After growing up in cold and snowy Western New York, my husband Andy and I thought that Maryland would be a great place to live and start a family. We have three children. Lauren is our oldest, and lives in Bethesda with her husband. She gave birth to identical twin girls in July--Campbell and Logan. Our daughter Taylor is the Math Specialist at Green Valley Elementary and gave birth to my first grandson, Camden, in July too! Michael graduated from the University of Maryland and returned home after graduating. (Does anyone have a good job for a 26-year-old English major???) Luckily, no matter how old my children get, I get to spend each day with my Deer Crossing children...
