Welcome to Room 3!
There is a saying that "children learn what they live". At the very core of my beliefs about teaching, learning, and life are what I am calling my Three C's: Curiosity, Creativity, and Compassion. These are the ideals you can expect your child to live with this year in Room 3, and I welcome you to a community of learning and growing!
In these pages, you will find information about our curriculum, classroom expectations, and my teaching philosophy. You can also see examples of student videos under the Student Work tab. Don't forget to visit Our Classroom Happenings Blog to find out what we've been up to lately!

Better World Books
Looking to build your family's home library? Better World Books is a fantastic organization selling used books. They collect books that might otherwise be thrown away, sell them for a discounted price, ship them to you with no extra charge, and donate books to literacy programs around the world for every book you buy. I order from them all the time!
