Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

 

Welcome back to another new and exciting school year! My name is Mrs. Tran and this year will be my second year teaching 3rd grade at Saint Anne Parish School. I received my multiple subject teaching credential and B.A. in Liberal Studies from San Francisco State University. I had six years teaching experience in the San Francisco Unified School District as a paraprofessional, 4/5 combo biliteracy classroom teacher and 4th-grade teacher. I have had training in the Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards. My knowledge and skills in the rigorous curriculum help support English Language Learners and students with special needs to have better access to the resources and the core curriculum.

I am dedicated and passionate about my teaching and learning new things every day. As a classroom teacher, I want my students to feel safe, enjoy learning, be respectful, accountable, cooperate with others, and be productive. My goals are to focus on increasing literacy, a better understanding of Math, more academic language, and positive social interactions for all students. I have high expectations for my students and my role is to guide them to try their best in their academics and to work collaboratively with others. I will continue to encourage and support our students to be independent in their learning, collaborate in their group projects, integrate technology in the academic curriculum, develop a structured Wonders curriculum in reading and writing workshops for ELA, STEAM in Science, and implement the new Sadlier’s Math curriculum for this school year.

I am looking forward to a new classroom of enthusiastic learners. With the 21st-century learning environment full of up to date resources, technologies, and your support, our students will have the encouragement and motivation for academics success. I hope that we will work together to support our younger generation for a brighter future because I believe that education is the key to a better way of life.

God bless,
Mrs. Tran
