Dear Boys and Girls,

Welcome to our fourth grade class! My name is Ms. Console and I am thrilled to be your fourth grade teacher this year! I hope you had a wonderful summer with your friends and family. I look forward to hearing your stories and getting to know each of you as we become a family of learners. You will soon discover that I enjoy being outside, traveling, cooking, and reading. I enjoyed a very busy summer with family time at my cottage in Canada and a trip to Mackinac Island. You will also hear many stories about my Golden Retriever, Bailey!

I am a proud graduate of Rochester Community Schools myself. I attended Adams High School and continued on to Oakland University. Go Grizzlies! I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, with a major in Language Arts. I am currently working on my Master’s degree in Reading and Literacy. This will be my fourth year teaching in Rochester. I taught fifth grade at Long Meadow for two years and this is my second year teaching fourth grade at Hampton Elementary. Fourth grade is a very special year for you and I am sure you are just as anxious as I am to get started! This is going to be a fantastic year, fourth graders!

Warm Regards,

Ms. Console
