                                                          ALL ABOUT MRS. COLLINS
 
 I am super excited to incorporate my experience of 7 years teaching Language Arts/ Reading/ Writing into Math & Science. Our Math & Science teaching team in 3rd grade  is thrilled to work together to plan powerful instruction for your children. I will be incorporating the classroom model of Guided Math along with other teaching models to present mathematical concepts. I will be implementing this model for my classroom structure. We can talk more about this at Parent Orientation, but I am super excited. I have fallen in love with teaching math. There is nothing more amazing then discovering each child's math brain. Children all learn in different ways and I truly enjoy teaching to fit their needs. 

On a more personal note... I have a strong passion for teaching. This will be my 10th year to teach at Willow Creek and my 7th year to teach 3rd grade! My first two years of teaching experience were in 4th grade Language Arts. I absolutely love what I do! I started pursuing education at the age of 21 working as a paraprofessional at Nitsch Elementary in Klein ISD. After deciding to become a full time student at Sam Houston State, I started substitute teaching in Klein for the following two years. I graduated from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas in August of 2008. My first year of teaching I was recognized as Elementary Rookie Teacher of the Year.
I am a proud mommy of two precious baby boys named Everett & Cooper. Everett is 7 & Cooper is 4. They are my treasures. Not only am I your child's teacher but I am also a fellow mommy. I cannot believe how fast they are growing! Everett will be a 2nd grader this year at WCES in Mrs. Madere's class! Cooper is going into Pre-K and will be joining us at WCES next year! It is a blessing to watch him and Everett develop a brotherly relationship! They never argue. LOL ;)

Please know that I treasure every day that you trust me with teach your precious child. I understand how hard it is to let go and put your trust in someone else! Trust me. I have your child's best interest at heart and hope that they have a great year. Remember, you are the expert on your child! We are going to be a team this year to ensure your child reaches their goals. 
 
Please look on-line to see your child's grades on a regular basis. If you happen to see a blank in the space, it means they have not turned in this assignment for a grade. I periodically alert students of missing assignments so the children are aware of what they need to accomplish during independent work time. If students choose to waste their work time, this can become an issue. We do offer study hall during recess time for any students that need to make-up work assignments. Ultimately, it is the student's responsibility to complete and turn in work. This responsibility skill will effect them in the future. I want all of the students to be successful! I will take work assignments late, but at times there maybe a point deduction.

Math Homework

Their fact check this week will be mixed addition and subtraction within 20.

need help

Parents,

I need your help. There are two math grades that I saved numerous times before sending home in the Wednesday folders last week that have now disappeared in my grade book online. Is there any way you could check your child's grade book online for the last fact check (doubles using doubles) and an addition quiz (daily grade) and see if it shows up on your end? If not, is there anyway that you kept the graded papers from last week? The addition quiz had 3 digit + 3 digit addition algorithms on the front and six word problems on the back.

If you can either see your child's grades for these two assignments or you still have the papers at home, would you PLEASE email me these grades as soon as possible? The district help desk is also working to retrieve these two grades. I am so sorry about this technical error.

Any help is appreciated!

Ms. Collins
