Welcome to an exciting new school year! My name is Joanna Crespo. I am looking forward to working with you as a partner in educating your child this year. There will be many opportunities for you to come into our class room and I hope you are able to join us in the learning. Your child will be exposed to so much in the coming months and my goal as their teacher is to facilitate learning in a fun and engaging way. I hope to provide a classroom environment in which your child can question, learn, share, and flourish each day. It is important to remember that the learning process in fourth grade is a journey full of wonders, not a race to the finish.
