Welcome to Team Philson!
Hello and welcome to fourth grade! I am excited to announce that I will be your fourth grade teacher. This is my second year teaching at YPA and a I thrilled to get this new school year started! I am looking forward to working with you and your child in reaching his or her full potential. We will have many wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead. I strongly believe in communication and volunteering in our class! Please feel free to look over our page and let me know if you have any questions! 
A Little about myself and family:
I was born and raised here in Rock Hill, right down the road from YPA. I  am happily married and have two wonderful kids, Drew and Aicilan. We also have a little Chihuahua, Dash. You will hear me talk a lot about my family and puppy! My family and I love sports and are very competitive. :) We also love to travel and do anything outdoors. I am so excited to get to learn what hobbies each of you like as well!

This year I want my class to have an abundance of books to choose from! I will be sending home Scholastic Reading Club order forms throughout this whole year.  Scholastic's prices are reasonable and the quality is excellent. You never pay sales tax, and you don’t even pay shipping and handling.  All orders are shipped directly to our classroom. Also, when you order from Scholastic you are supporting our classroom because we get bonus points from every order that we can use to buy books for the class! If we earn the 10,000 points, we get to get a lot of books for FREE to add to our classroom library!  Class Activation Code to use when ordering: P9VV2

Homework Guide and Wednesday Folders:

This year in addition to the homework calendar, students will be responsible for writing down their homework each day from the board in their homework calendars that I have purchased for our class. I am all about teaching organization and responsibility. There will be consequences for students that do not complete their homework journals or complete homework on a daily basis. 

Folders that contain grades or any other important papers will go home every Wednesday.
