My name is Katherine Cleary. I will be your teacher this year. I hope you have a great year in Third Grade. I have been teaching for twenty years! I have taught several different grade levels, but third is my favorite. I am married and have three sons. Their names are Patrick, Ryan, and Ian. They are 16, 14, and 12. They enjoy sports so I spend a lot of time going to football, basketball, and lacrosse games. I grew up in Roanoke, Virginia and both of my parents were teachers. I graduated from Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia in 1988. I have a dog named Tucker. He is a yellow lab. My favorite subject is Reading and I enjoy reading books and exercising at the gym!
