Welcome to our third grade class website.

A little about me:  I have a BA degree and certification in Early Childhood Education.  Over the past six years I completed 24 graduate credits. I have taught first grade for one year, remedial reading and writing in a NJ high school for eight years, fourth grade for one year and third grade here at Penn Kidder for ten years.

This year we welcome a student teacher from Bloomsburg University, Miss Santorelli.  She will be with us until December.   We look forward to working with her.

Please visit our class website often.  I think you will find it very helpful.  It's a great way to stay informed.   You will find announcements, dates of upcoming tests and quizzes, a supply list, helpful links for your child, and much more.

Below is a blog site where students can give their opinions on different topics.  Click on the link for the blog and check it out.  I'm looking forward to hearing from all of you! (All responses are reviewed before being posted.)
