Welcome To Fourth Grade!
I am very excited for the upcoming school year. Fourth grade is such a wonderful grade and I cannot wait to get started. Please visit my website each week to view important announcements.
I dreamed I saw a studio
And watched two sculptors there.
The clay they used was a child's mind
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher-the tools he used
Were books, music, and art.
The other, a parent, worked with a guiding hand,
And a gentle, loving heart.
Day after day, the teacher toiled with a touch,
That was careful and sure,
While the parent labored and smoothed it over.
And when at last, their task was done,
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had molded into the child.
Could be neither sold nor bought.
And each agreed they would have failed
If either had worked alone.
For behind the parents stood the school
And behind the teacher, the home.
