Welcome to Fourth Grade!
About me, Mrs.Ducasse
This is my sixth year at Christ the King and I am looking forward to another exciting year! I moved to Vermont in 2010 with my husband Tyler and my nine year old twins, Nathan and Isabelle. We love camping, traveling, hiking, skiing and enjoying doing a variety of activities depending on the season.
I have been teaching for over twelve years. I started my teaching career in Canada in 2000 teaching Fifth Grade and then Third Grade. I moved to Munich, Germany in 2002 and taught Fourth Grade at the Bavarian International School. My students came from all over the world. (Japan, US, Germany, South Africa, Brazil, England, Czech Republic, Greece, Spain etc.) It was truly a multi-cultural experience. After that, I moved to Arizona and worked as a Hospital School Teacher for pediatric patients aged Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade. I have a passion for education and believe in providing a positive learning environment for all students. Respect, responsibility, accountability and independent and critical thinking is a major part of Fourth Grade .
My Teaching Philosophy
My belief is that a teacher must, first and foremost, give students a love of learning and give them opportunities to build critical and creative thinking skills to be ready for the 21st Century learning and forever changing world.Communication and Working as a Team
Communication between parents and teachers plays a crucial role in a child's education. Please feel free to contact me via email or at school if you have any questions or if you would like to set up a time to meet. I check email when time permits before and after school. My web page is an invaluable tool to let you know what is going on in fourth grade at CKS.
