Student and Family,
I am thrilled to be joining the fourth grade community this year! It is going to be an amazing year. In fourth, you will have more responsibility, autonomy, freedom and greater challenges. I know that each of you can handle it! We will explore the wonders of our earth, create our own economy, learn coding and robotics, investigate how America came to be the country we know now, go on many adventures through the pages of books and create our own through our experiences and writings! I can’t wait to get started.
I am a Tucson native. Most of my free time is spent hiking, traveling, reading and exploring on my own or with my daughter and two dogs, Jelly Bean and Oso. I joined the Tanque Verde community last year as a third grade teacher and am so happy to return this year in fourth grade. Two years of prior teaching experience in fourth grade showed me that it is one of my favorite grades to teach! Students at this age are so open to learning, full of curiosity and take ownership over their learning. I received my Bachelor's degree in History from the University of Arizona and my Master's degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University. I love historical fiction, learning new things and strong black coffee.
I am really looking forward to seeing you at the “Meet and Greet” on Wednesday, July 31st between 9:30 am - 11:30 am. From 9:30-10:30, you are welcome to come by,
see our classroom, and drop off any supplies. Our first day of school is Thursday, August 1st it will
be an early out day with dismissal at 11:10 am.
I hope you have a wonderful summer, I’m looking forward to seeing you soon!
Ms. Haley Wilson
