Welcome to an incredible year at Western! 

Fourth grade is an exciting time as we embark upon new adventures in the world of learning.  So much happens in the fourth grade!  Many interesting activities have been planned, which will allow both students and the parents to be integral parts of the on-going learning process.  I hope to make the learning experiences in my classroom fun and exciting, and I hope to instill a love of learning that will last throughout each student's years of schooling.

It is extremely important to keep in mind that we all build on small successes.  Every success should be celebrated, no matter how small it may seem.  Each child will progress at his/her own rate, acquiring skills as he/she is developmentally ready.  Maintaining each child's self-esteem and building a secure foundation for future growth will always remain a priority in my fourth grade.

Please don't hesitate to e-mail me with any questions or concerns.
