Hello and welcome to fourth grade!
Check out our classroom wiki at http://grabowski.wikispaces.com
My name is Laura Grabowski, and I will be your child’s fourth grade teacher for the upcoming school year. This will be my second year teaching 4th grade at Oak Grove. I have also taught first grade, and I have a degree in English as a Second Language.
I am looking forward to meeting and learning about your children, as I understand that every child learns differently and has different needs. It is my goal to reach every student in the way they learn best. I am a believer in cooperative and inquiry based learning, where the students discover things for themselves through hands-on activities, group work, and whole class lessons. I have high expectations of all my students and I’m looking forward to making this school year the best yet!
Fourth grade is a wonderful year with a lot of new experiences. I will be happy to explain in detail my classroom policies and procedures, as well as academic expectations, on our parent information night. I believe that parents play a vital role in the education of my students, so please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org as needed.
I am looking forward to an exciting 2012-2013 school year!
