Communication is the key to all successful relationships.
Welcome to another wonderful year at Rosa Lee Carter! I am looking forward to working with you and your child and the fourth grade students! My goal this year will be to continue to develop your child into a life long, independent learner.
I am excited to begin my 10th year teaching in Loudoun County! My love of learning extends beyond my classroom teaching. I completed my doctorate degree to encourage students and to demonstrate you can always learn.
My excitement for learning spills over into the activities I plan for my students. I incorporate life skills and social skills into all areas of my teaching, as I know I am helping to create a love of continued learning in the next generation. I expect each of my students to put forth his/her best effort. I love determining what motivates each student; then connecting the activities we complete in class with their motivation.
Our classroom will be participating in Personalized Learning, and BYOT this year. Please remind your student to charge their device each evening, to be ready to start the day. If you have any questions, please refer to the BYOT page off of the main Rosa Lee Carter web-page,contact Mrs. Homer our chief technology expert, or myself.
look forward to working with you and your child during the school
year. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
