Greetings from Mrs. Varner to all the third graders and their families.
My philosophy is to love the child and teach them a life-long love of learning. I try to teach by example---I read to them daily and I have grown former students who still ask, “Do you still read books to the class?” Reading is the key to all learning and a foundation in good reading skills will help your child in all areas of his or her learning. This year I will try to inspire them by reading science and history books.
Science will be a new area for us to explore. I will be doing lots of learning along with the students. I am very excited about doing many experiments and hands on activities. We will be keeping a Science/Social studies journal to keep up with all the new and interesting things we will be learning.
My other great passion is for Social Studies. I have a legacy of many years teaching history and government. I am patriotic and hope to instill a sense of patriotism in all my students. If I could make them realize the importance of being a good citizen and the responsibilities that go with it, I feel my job has been successful.
Please do not hesitate to e-mail or call me with any concerns. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. and the school phone number is (817) 866-4600. Conference time is 11:15-12:15 daily.
Thank you for sharing your child with me and I hope to see you soon!
