Welcome to our 4th Grade ELA classroom. We will be learning the Arizona State 4th Grade College and Career Standards throughout the school year through nonfiction and fiction text; developing narrative, informational, and functional text; practicing grammar; expanding our vocabulary; and cultivating speaking and listening skills.
My family of 6 moved to the Gilbert area in 1997 from California via Oregon. All four of our sons traversed the hallways of Gilbert Public schools. I have been teaching 4th grade for over 15 years with most recently a focus of English Language Arts, and enjoyed every minute of those years. In my spare time, I love to read, garden, and spend time with my family. I am the proud grandma of 4 grandsons and 1 granddaughter with a new grandchild expected in April. Two of my sons and their families live in the area, while the other two live in the Seattle, Washington area. My oldest grandson has now begun his travels through the Gilbert Public schools as a Kindergartner here at HPE.
