Welcome to another wonderful year at Rosa Lee Carter! I am looking forward to working with you, your child, and the fourth grade students! My goal this year will be to continue to develop your child into a lifelong, independent learner.
I am excited about starting my 10th year at Rosa Lee Carter. Our classroom will be participating in Personalized Learning, and BYOT. Please remind your child to charge their device each evening to be ready to start the day. If you have any questions on technology, please refer to the BYOT page off of the main Rosa Lee Carter web-page, or contact Mrs. Homer our chief technology expert, or myself.
I look forward to working with you and your child.
