Mr. Moriarty's class
Welcome to our Grade 4 Grade 5 class page!
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our Grade 4 & 5 classroom and introduce myself to you. My name is Brendan Moriarty and I will be your child's Language, Math and Religion teacher at Our Lady of Peace and your child's Science & Arts teacher at St. James. This is my second year at Our Lady of Peace, having taught Grade 6 last year and my first year at St. James.
Throughout my 15 years of teaching, I have taught grades 4-9, both in Ontario and the United States. My classroom and philosophies are meant to encourage students to become critical thinkers and lifelong learners through meaningful and engaging learning opportunities. To accomplish this, we have completed an initial survey whereas our students have communicated their strengths, areas they can improve upon and areas of interests.
In the hopes of making communication simple and straightforward, we will not only be using your child's agenda, but also via this website and my Twitter page (@BrenMoriarty) which you may follow if you choose. Furthermore, your child has a Google account which they have access to outside of school. All major assignments will be shared via their class folders for both their and your convenience. Many in-class documents will be shared as well in order to make as many resources available to our students as possible.
Thank you in advance for your support. I anticipate an exciting year as we learn and grow together.
