Welcome to my website!  
    My name is Vicki Caldwell and I teach third grade at Sommer Elementary.  I have been teaching for 24 years.  I started off in kindergarten, moved to first grade, spent several years as a reading specialist, then moved back into a classroom at second grade.  I never thought that I would want to change grades again.
   Four years ago, I decided that I wanted to try third grade.  It was the BEST decision ever!!!  I L.O.V.E. this grade level and am having a blast.  Every day is a mind growing day around here.!
   I am married and have two children.  My son and my daughter are in high school.  They were both Sommer Stallions when they were younger.  This summer we adopted a rather large puppy named Winston.  I'll have lots of stories about "Winnie" this year to share with everyone!
   I believe very strongly in the idea that school should be a place that you want to come to on a daily basis.  I want learning to be so fun, so interesting, that you just can't stand the idea of missing a day!  I treat my students like I want my personal children treated. We are a huge family. That's the measure I use for all planning and decision making.  
   When I was in elementary school, I was very naughty.  I would finish my work, think about things to do and go do them!  Needless to say, I spent a lot of time in trouble!  Based upon my school experiences, I believe  that every child should be academically challenged each day and use their super powers for good as much as possible.
   So there you have it.  Now you know a smidge about me, Mrs. C.
