Dear Third Grade Parents,

Time is going by so quickly with only a couple of weeks left until 3rd grade is done. We will be having a beach day with grade 3,4 and 5.

Dear Families,
I am so excited to be teaching your child this year. Grade 3 is such a special year with many pivotal advances in learning and social development as the students transition from their early primary years to upper elementary; it is an honor to be able to help them learn and grow.

My name is Patti-Jo Boettcher, which is pronounced without the o- Betcher. I have been teaching for 20 years and 18 of these years overseas. I am an elementary specialist with classroom experience from grade 2 through grade 5. I have worked in Canada, Thailand, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Colombia and Saudi Arabia. Busan has delighted me at every turn. I have my Master of Science in International Learning Styles and love learning myself so have completed many online courses and attend conferences to stay up to date with the best teaching practices from around the world.

I expect that parents can and should visit the classroom and will do my best to provide you with opportunities to come in and see what we are learning and celebrate our successes with us.

If you have any questions, concerns, suggestions or want to volunteer in the classroom, please let me know.

Miss Patti-Jo Boettcher
