Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mrs. Foster's 4th Grade Class! I have taught for over 30 years. I earned by Bachelors degree in special education from Roosevelt University in Chicago, IL. I completed by masters degree in education/special education from National Louis University in Evanston, IL in 1995.
I love teaching and I'm confident we will have a successful year! I believe students can grow, develop, and learn by examining the concepts, skills and content we cover in class. The main goal of 4th grade is to be engaged & acquire skills in the four core curriculum content areas: Language Arts (reading, spelling, writing, grammar) Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Whether that content is covered with a textbook, a game reports, projects or experiments the fundamental objective is to gain the necessary knowledge that is needed.
I encourage all students to be responsible, respectful & safe.
