Welcome to Fourth Grade at Shannon Johnson Elementary! I am happy to have been a Hawk since 2000. After teaching second graders for ten years, I moved up to teaching fourth graders. What an amazing adventure! My focus is reading. I love to read! Plot, characters, conflict, theme, setting--these are the five major elements of a short story that we learn about throughout the year. We learn so much more, but this is just a start.
We work so hard in our classes to learn in fun ways. There are many new responsibilities for our 4th graders throughout the year. Families, please be supportive of your child's learning in any way that you can. If you have questions, celebrations, or concerns that arise throughout the year, please contact me. I am happy to discuss your child's progress during planning time (9:05 - 9:55, daily) or at another time that is convenient to your schedule.
Thanks so much!
