Families and students,
Welcome to third grade!! My name is Josie Moore, and I will be your child’s teacher for 3rd grade. I am so excited for the upcoming school year, as well as to get to know your child and your family. I am confident that we will have a prosperous and productive year together!
A little about me…I graduated with my undergraduate degree from Rhodes College, and earned my Masters in Education from Vanderbilt University. This is my 6th year teaching, and this is my fifth year in 3rd grade. My husband and I just moved back to the Upstate after being away for about 10 years, and so we are excited to be near family again.
This year, you can look forward to your child making the transition from “learning to read” to “reading to learn.” In math, we will start learning concepts and strategies that will set them up for success from now until high school! It’s a BIG year :) Most importantly, we will emphasize the value of mistakes, the benefits of being precise in our writing, and the value of efficiency in our work. I absolutely love this grade- being an 8 -10 year old is an exciting time!
I am so proud to be a Hunt Meadows teacher, and I’m excited to work with you to help your child reach his/her highest potential. You can help me the most by staying up-to-date on what your child is learning, by supporting the school-wide and classroom discipline plan, and by making a point to talk about school at home, in any way that you can. Please do not hesitate to contact me!
It is going to be a great year!
Sincerely, Mrs. Moore
