Welcome Third Graders and Families!
I hope you have been enjoying a fun, relaxing summer and are ready to begin a spectacular new school year. I know that I am ready to meet you! :)
This will be my sixth year teaching third grade on Mercer Island. I took the last school year off to spend time with my daughter, Emma, and I am excited to be back! We have a year full of adventures ahead of us as a third grade class. Not only will you be growing as readers, writers, and mathematicians, you will also get to learn about some exciting subjects in both science and social studies.
When I was in third grade, I moved from Ohio to Texas right in the middle of the school year. I felt anxious and hesitant as I met a class full of new faces and an unfamiliar teacher. You may be feeling this way about your first day of third grade, but just know that we are in this together! We will have many opportunities to learn and grow as a class, and build strong, lasting relationships with each other.
About Mrs. Dye:
I moved to Washington from Texas almost 10 years ago, and I love living in the Pacific Northwest! My husband and I enjoy taking our daughter and our border collie, Champ, hiking and backpacking. Some of my other favorites are: reading, country music, trying new foods, anything purple, camping, ferryboats, the Sounders, and most of all… TEACHING!
I am eagerly awaiting the first day of school, and I look forward to a FANTASTIC year with you! :)
