Mrs. McGee’s Class is the bomb diggity!
This is a picture of me.  I took this picture when I was in Ireland in July.  It was my first time across the pond and I had a marvelous time.  I didn’t take many selfies before I went to Europe, but I kind of liked taking them in different places while on my trip. 

Yay!  I’m so glad you are joining me for 4th grade this year!  As I enter my 19th year at Haisley, I am looking forward to being a part of your lives.  The first day of school is always nerve racking.  I get butterflies too.  Here are some things to keep in mind as you come to Haisley on Tuesday, September 6th:
1.    I am beyond excited to be teaching you and having your parents support us throughout our journey together. 
2.    It can be difficult walking into a new place, but usually, it turns out to be a spectacular experience and later, you can’t believe you were ever nervous. 
3.   If you are still nervous after the first day, find a fifth grader who had me last year.  Ask them to tell you a little bit about me.  
4.   Here are some things you should know about me:  I like to laugh.  Get ready to laugh a lot while we learn this year.  Being kind to one another is really important to me.  Start thinking about some ways you can practice kindness this year.  I love to write.  Writing letters and postcards is one of my favorite things to do.  One of my favorite things about teaching is being surrounded by amazing people all day.  It’s the best job in the entire world.  Happy New Year!  Let’s get this year started!
