Fourth Grade Philosophy

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. - William Butler Yeats

This 4th grade classroom belongs to all of us. I believe by working together, we will further develop your child spiritually, mentally, socially and physically. We will inspire a caring community that fosters creativity, individuality and equality. 


For the value of wisdom is far above rubies; nothing can be compared to it. Proverbs 8:12
