Welcome to Third Grade!

Together, the third grade teachers will be implementing a "specialized" approach to learning. This means that the students will flourish under each core teacher's expertise. 

Mrs. B. Achord 
I will be crafting our third graders into wonderful writers.  We will be learning to write in a variety of genres and using the writing process to proofread and edit our work.  Students will be learning writing mechanics along with learning to use creativity.  Students will learn to take ownership of their writing and create voice.

Mrs. Foley 
I will be engaging our third graders with high interest text during Reader's Workshop.

I am an avid reader and cannot wait to share my love for reading with the third grade students.  Third grade is a transitional year for students - students transition from learning to read to reading to learn and I look forward to joining and supporting the students on their journey to becoming stronger readers.


Mrs. Patterson

I will be teaching the students mathematics using innovative and exciting techniques. It is my goal to make math relatable using manipulatives and real life experiences. I will strive for each child's success as we venture on this journey together. I will create a space where math is fun and exciting. I am here to help with any challenges along the way as we learn and grow together. 


Mrs. Sanford

I am very excited to be working with the 3rd grade team to support our Special Education students.  I have been working as a Special Education teacher in Greenwood Lake for 20 years.  I am looking forward to an exciting and productive school year.




We look forward to working with all the students as they rotate through our classrooms this year
