Room D17- Mrs. Bodreau

Dear Bumblebee Families,

This is the time of year where all of the foundational skills that we have worked so hard on in class over the past 7 months comes together. I am impressed every day by the growth that EVERY child has made. I am amazed  every day when I listen to the children read to me or when I read their writing. I am one PROUD teacher.  I'm looking forward to the fabulous fun and learning we are going to have as we begin our last quarter of the year. 

Thank you for sharing your child with me,
Dendra Bodreau
