I graduated from Abilene Christian University with a degree in Elementary and
Special Education. I am married with three children and have two beautiful grandchildren. I
taught school for four years before I started my family. I was a stay at
home mother for sixteen years. This is my 13th year teaching 3rd grade
Math and Science at Willow Creek.  Teaching your children Math and
Science is very rewarding, but mostly I love getting to spend a school year with 
your child watching them grow and learn!

Good evening!  Tomorrow is our field trip to the Nutcracker.  We will be eating lunch in our room, students are encouraged to bring a sack lunch, but they will have the opportunity to buy their lunch at school.  Dress attire can be Christmas shirts, Willow Creek shirts, Christmas colors, or clothes they would wear to school. 

Happy Monday!  Today your child should be bringing home a Science Study Guide on Forces.  The test is Thursday, Nov. 15th.  Tomorrow is their Subtraction test, they should also have some sample math word problems in their yellow folder if you want to review with them.  Multiplication is next!!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I feel so thankful to have your child this year :)

A new 9 weeks!

As we enter into the second 9 weeks your child is continuing to add, subtract and solve in 1 and 2 step word problems.  Please continue timing your child on their basic addition and subtraction facts.  This will help them be successful in working with larger numbers.  Please email me if you need more practice fact pages to time your child for 2 minutes!  Thank you for your support!

Parent night

Hello Parents!

In case you didn't already know, Parent Night for grades 3-4 is Thursday, September 6th. However, Mrs. Herriman is anxiously awaiting the arrival of her newest grandbaby, Ella Jean! Ella’s Mommy and Daddy live in Colorado and she is expected to make her debut sometime during Labor Day weekend. So, Mrs. Herriman will be flying out there on September 1st! Therefore, Mrs. Herriman and I will conduct our Parent Night at the same time as grades K-2, on August 30th.  PTO will talk from 5:30-6:00 and teacher introductions begins at 6:00.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We will send home the presentation through our Edlio pages afterwards for anyone that is unable to attend. As always, we are available by email or phone for questions!

Thank you!

Mrs. Gonzales and Mrs. Herriman
