​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to the Third Grade Gifted Academy at Apache Elementary

Third Grade is a great time of independence and responsibility.  We will be working together as a team; your child, you and me, as one team with a common goal.  That goal is to educate and nurture your son or daughter.  I ask that you stay involved in your child's studies this year and encourage them to always do their best.

I will work to the best of my abilities to create a nurturing and safe learning environment.  I will work hard to make them wonder and question, to become an original thinker as well as become a flexible and fluent thinker.  I will help each child to continue to develop their character to their full potential.

​There are many exciting things planned for the school year and I hope to provide your child with interesting and successful learning experiences.  I am looking forward to working not only with your child but also with you.  With your support we can have a tremendous year that will be rewarding and exciting.  Thank you for trusting me with your child.
