    Welcome To Fourth Grade
    Hello Parents and Students,
             Another year is upon us and I look forward to teaching your child. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child and working together to help your child succeed. As parents and guardians, I understand that you are the most important teachers in your child’s life and it is with that understanding that I appreciate the role that you and I play in the partnership to your child achieving the goals set forth for her.   
             I would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief overview of myself. I grew up in Desoto, MO. After graduating Desoto High School I earned my BS in Elementary Education from Harris-Stowe and my Masters and Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Saint Louis University. Also, I have been married for 25 years to my wife, Jessica, and have a daughter, Genevieve, who is attending Harris-Stowe State University.  I have taught kindergarten,  first, second and fourth grade over the last twenty years that I have been at Woerner Elementary.  During the 2014-2015 school year I was awarded the iHeart Media Teacher of the Month for December 2014.
             I will be teaching your child reading, writing, language, spelling, Math, and Social Studies. I love all of the subjects that I teach but it is especially my goal to instill a lifelong passion of reading and writing in all of my students. I have very high expectations of myself, as a teacher as well as of my students, and have always found that to be a formula for success! I want this to be an enjoyable year for all of my students, but also a productive, challenging and encouraging year.
             I look forward to meeting you on the first day of school and working with you throughout the year. If you have any other concerns, please feel free to contact me. Communication is a huge part of your child’s success. If you have any questions/concerns, would like to visit the classroom, schedule a conference, or volunteer to help, you can contact me on MicroSoft Teams Chat during office hours or email me at adodson0004@slps.org.

    Once again, welcome to 4th Grade! I know that together, we can make this a wonderful school year!
