Let me welcome you and your child to another exciting year of learning! I will be your child's third grade Language Arts teacher for the 2020-2021school year. I have been an educator for over 20 years and have taught in the Madison County School District for the last ten years. I have a Bachelor's and Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Jackson State University.
Third grade is an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which acquisition of new skills is accelerated. Parents, as well as children, may have some apprehensions about what will happen. It is extremely important to keep in mind that we will all build on small successes. Each child will progress at his/her own rate, acquiring skills, as he/she is developmentally ready. Although, we are embarking on a year of various challenges and uncertainty, maintaining each child's self-esteem and building a secure foundation for future growth will always remain a priority in our third grade classroom. If you have any questions, always feel free to contact me via phone or e-mail.
Mrs. Margie Cleveland
