Mrs. Green's 3rd Grade Class
My name is Jillian Green. Mrs. Grafton and I are teaming up to give your child an amazing 3rd grade year. I will be responsible for teaching English Language Arts and Social Studies.
For the past six years I've taught 6th grade English Language Arts. I am new to Pecan Park, but no stranger to the dedication it takes to ensure your child receives a fair but rigorous education. I am excited for the opportunity to be your child's teacher. Let's make it a great year!

At the end of this school year, your child has an important test to take. Your child must pass the third grade state test in order to pass third grade. I will prepare your child for this test. It will be on my mind every single day that I enter the classroom. Your child's success is my success. Your child's failures are my failures. In turn, your child's success is your success, and your child's failures are your failures. We must work together the whole year, day in and day out, to ensure the success your child. I promise you, I will give it my all. We are in this together.

Students are expected to read every day. Besides the prize of growing as a learner and a reader, students will be rewarded at the end of each term for meeting his/her goal.
