 Third Grade

Third grade can be a very exciting, yet challenging, time in a child's life.  The third grade teachers at Mechanicsville Elementary School invite you to share in the excitement as students travel back in time to Ancient Greece, Rome, and Mali.  They will continue their travels during the age of exploration by sailing with explorers such as Christopher Columbus, Juan Ponce de Leon, Jacques Cartier, and Christopher Newport.  Students will also study simple machines, energy, earth and life cycles, and biomes.  We look forward to a wonderful year!

     As professionals, we have 35 years of experience and have had the opportunity to work with many students.  We have taught in many interesting places including North Carolina, and various counties in Virginia.  We share a variety of teaching experiences including from Kindergarten to 5th grade.

     On a more personal note, we love to travel and have visited such far away places as Japan, Italy, Belgium, Germany, England, France, Switzerland, Ireland, and Canada, Mexico, Bahamas, US Virgin Islands, Guam, as well as the majority of our fifty states.  Our pets include fish, frogs, cats, and dogs.  We enjoy reading, sports, art, crafts, exercising, gardening, singing, dancing, river trips, sailing and Nascar! 

     We are excited to welcome you to third grade.  We look forward to a great year with your children.  Please browse through our web site and find many interesting SOL related web sites for you and your children to use at home.
