This year, Ms. Parent has a mixed track 1 & 2 class and Mrs. Burdette has a track 1 class.
When track 2 tracks out, Ms Parent and Mrs. Burdette will continue sharing our track 1 students via team teaching ~ and we will have a slightly smaller group :)
When track 1 tracks out, Mrs. Burdette and all track 1 students will track out and Ms. Parent will have a self contained class of only track 2 students ~( a really small group!!) She will teach all subjects until Ms. Burdette tracks back in with the track 1 students.
Mrs. Burdette teaches ELA English Language Arts which includes reading, writing, word study and social studies/ science content. Ms. Parent teaches math, hands on science, and social studies. Mrs. Burdette and Ms. Parent work very closely together to be sure all of our students are supported, challenged, and cared for. Students and parents can talk to either teacher about any suggestions or concerns.
Fourth grade is a transition year for most students. Parents and teachers are turning over more responsibilities to students and nurturing their independence, conflict/resolution skills, and self esteem. Students will sharpen their study, note taking, research, and technology skills.
Remember that "it's not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.'
We are here to help develop a group of successful human beings !
