Welcome to fourth grade at Balmoral Elementary School. It is hard to believe, but it is school time again!!! I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year. I believe all children have the right to the best education possible that suits their needs. As your child’s educator, it will be my responsibility to discover the uniqueness of each individual scholar in my classroom and adjust and accommodate instruction accordingly.
It is my philosophy that learning is a team effort, and that our common goal is to help your child become an independent and confident learner. It is very important that you play an active role in your child’s education. I believe that by working together we will make this a very successful school year.
I truly consider it an honor and privilege to be your child’s teacher this year, and look forward to meeting with each of you. Curriculum Night will be held on Thursday, September 14th from 6:00 to 7:30. It is at that time you will receive more detailed information regarding policies and procedures of our classroom.
If you have any questions or concerns before Curriculum Night, please feel free to contact me. By phone you can reach me at 1-708-367-2527 or if you prefer e-mail my address is Hathawayj@cm201u.org . Also, this year I have set up a Twitter account. I will send messages/reminders as needed as well as responding to any questions or concerns you may “tweet”.
Looking forward to a wonderful year,
