My name is Mary Kathryn Lauderdale, and this will be my third full year teaching third grade. I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education, and I obtained endorsements in English and reading. I am so thrilled that your child is in my class, and I can promise we are going to have a FANTASTIC year! Please email me if you ever have any questions. I love hearing from parents- I think communication is the key to success, so please do not hesitate to email or call the school if you need me. Let's have a wonderful start to the year! GO JAGS!
I am a very energetic, fun-loving person, and I try to use those traits when I teach my students. In my classroom, we will be having fun while we are learning. My goal is to help your child succeed and be the best that they can be. I think it is important for teachers to model how learning can be exciting for students in order for them to want to do their best. I believe in every single child that walks into my classroom, and I will strive every day to help them grow to new heights. My teaching motto is listed below, and I believe that when parents and teachers work together on the same team, the outcome will be incredible!My teaching motto:"Every child deserves a champion-- an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best they can possibly be." - Rita Pierson (TED talk)
