WELCOME TO 3rd GRADE!!
My name is Courtney Christle, and I am very excited to be your child’s teacher for the 2022-2023 school year! I know we are going to have a great year and I expect the students to learn a lot. I moved to Missouri in May 2021 but I am originally from Indiana and I graduated from Trine University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. One more little thing about me is that I am a huge Disney fan! I am letting you know this because you will see it in my classroom and your students will know all about it.
I was a teacher here at Monroe last year, just not for the full year. I was hired late in the year after the New Year to take over the 5th grade classroom for the rest of the school year. I also taught Summer School in June at Monroe as well. I am ecstatic about returning to Monroe for the whole year and getting to know all of you!
We will be using a ClassDojo in our classroom this year to record behavior and send messages home to you all. You will be able to join our ClassDojo to view messages from me and see how your child is doing during the day. I also have a Remind messaging app to send group messages of information to everyone that you should know. On this website you can find more information on how to join our ClassDojo and our Remind messages.
One of the main goals I wish to see from my students is growth. I want to see, and I want the students to feel that they have grown since the beginning of the year started. Growth can mean several things. Whether they feel they grew personally, mentally, academically, etc. is what I want for the students. I want them to feel that they have changed and grown in some way as a person. It will be my goal as their teacher to help the kids do this in some way.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you have. I want all of you as families involved in our classroom and your child’s learning. Let’s have a great year, Monroe!!
