Mrs. Ellen Rossi
Hello and welcome to 4th grade! My name is Ellen Rossi and this is my fourth year working at the West Tisbury School. I love the passion and inquisitiveness of our students, and one of my main goals is to help them incorporate those passions into their education. One of my greatest joys is reading, and I truly believe that students should have choice in what they read. When children feel that books and their reading belongs to THEM rather than to the teacher, they grow as readers and begin to love the process. I want my students to understand the value of reading, and we will be doing a lot of it in 4th grade this year!
"All students in the class are readers- yes, with varying levels of readiness and interest- but readers nonetheless." -Donalynn Miller, "The Book Whisperer"
4th grade is full of new and exciting things! I strive to encourage students to become critical thinkers and problem solvers, and to foster their love of learning. On this website, you will find our daily schedule, any upcoming events or activities, weekly homework, and updates about what we are working on in the classroom. Please check in weekly to discover all the new things your children are learning! :)
