About Me

I am in my 31st year of teaching here at Adrian Elementary. I have taught in the lower grades, K-3. I have enjoyed many students over the years, and now have some of THEIR children. Time does fly!


The first trimester ends on November 21. Students should have all 12 points for their reading counts portion of their grade by the 19th. Please make sure to look over any homework that is brought home, remembering to sign the math Homelinks. Also, please note the Friday newsletter from our classroom. It gives you an overview of what we have done during the week, as well as information to keep you informed.

Special times

On Wednesday mornings we have Religion Release from 8:40-9:40. The kids that stay in school have some extra reading time to silent read, take computer tests, make up work, or practice needed skills. Our library class is Fridays from 1:30-2:15 followed by art class from 2:15-3:00.

Third Grade

Third Grade is a fun and exciting place. Please feel free to stop in and visit us any time!


We are enjoying our new reading series. We follow somewhat of a schedule each week as lessons are presented. On Mondays we learn the vocabulary for the week, introduce the theme of the story, and write our spelling words in the assignment notebook. On Tuesdays students will get a spelling homework paper, and we also start our story for the week. On Wednesday we finish our story, take a practice spelling test. Students also take home their reading book to share the story at home. On Thursdays we read a related selection the the story. Each day we also do a grammar lesson. On Fridays we take our weekly assessment test, grammar test, and spelling test.
