Dear families,
     I am looking forward to an exciting year full of learning and mastery of skills!  This will be my 27th year as an elementary teacher, having taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd,and 4th grades.  I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Texas Christian University and a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Sacramento State University.  This will be my 18th year to teach 3rd grade and I love making a difference in the lives of my students and their futures. 
     I have been married to my wonderful husband, Tim, for 37 years.  We have two adult children who bring us joy everyday.  Our daughter, Rachel, her husband, Brett, and three of our grandchildren, Sebastian, Ruby, and Smith, live in Springfield, MO.  Our son, Joseph, is Army.  He and his wife, Melaney, and our other granddaughter, Piper, are stationed in Fresno, CA, with the California National Guard where Joseph is a Blackhawk helicopter pilot.  We are very blessed as a family, and as you can imagine, are so very proud of them all!
     This is the year your child will grow and mature in responsibility and independence.  Thank you in advance for teaming with me to prepare him or her for the 4th grade and their years beyond.

Expecting the best,
Mrs. Gentry
