Mrs. Garrett's Classroom 2018-2019


I am excited to start my 8th year.  Over the years I have had the pleasure of getting to know so many great kids and families.  I am excited about this year's class and can't wait to get to know my students better. The biggest challenge I face every year is getting students to get out of their comfort zone and take risks.  We learn from our mistakes and failures. I want them to be independent thinkers and problem solvers.  They will claim I am not helping them and they can't do it, but I know how much they are capable of.  I am there to catch them when they fall, but I want them to try on their own first.  I am hoping this website can provide a place for news, information, and updates.  If you ever have any questions or concerns, please contact me.  815-844-3687.
