Introduction to Ms. Begeman
Tuesday, September 5, 2017
Dear 4th grade families:
WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL! I am so happy to be here at Fairmount Elementary preparing Room 9 for your first day of school: Wednesday, September 8th! I am looking forward to meeting you all and am thrilled that I get to spend the year getting to know you and your student.
A little about me: I grew up right here in Mukilteo and attended school in the Mukilteo School District. In fact, I went to 3rd-5th grade right here at Fairmount Elementary! I graduated from the University of Washington after completing the Master’s in Teaching Program. I’m a huge fan of teaching math and reading children’s books.
I am sending a separate sheet home fully explaining my management system. I use a clip system in order to provide a positive and responsible classroom environment for your students. If you have any questions about how it works please contact me.
We have many exciting things to study in the curriculum for grade 4, including a self-motivated math program where students will learn it’s OK to make mistakes, hands-on science investigations (the human body is so interesting!!!), creating writing pieces, and reading/responding to many different genres of literature. I know this is going to be a FANTASTIC year for you and I am excited to get started.
My door is always open if you have questions, comments, or just want to chat about your student. I am available before school from 8:15-9:00 or after school from 3:30-4.
School number (you will need to ask to be transferred to Ms. Begeman’s room): (425) 356-1301
I look forward to talking you and making this an amazing year!
