Grade 3 & 4

These grades provide increased possibilities for collaborative learning toward common and meaningful goals.

Grade 3 & 4

In Grades 3 and 4, students begin to think more independently, marking an important stage where they can be expected to step up to meet greater academic demands and take increased ownership of learning goals and success criteria.

Students continue to be encouraged to ask good questions and gain skills in research and investigation to find answers. These grades provide increased possibilities for collaborative learning toward common and meaningful goals. Hands-on learning and project work provide opportunities to gain knowledge and to celebrate learning.

Third and fourth graders continue to develop their ability to work independently, in small groups, and as a whole class. At this age, social relationships grow in their importance.

As personal understanding of God and His world develops, students are often ready to be challenged in expressing a personal faith and reach higher expectations of character integrity.

Growing up I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher but I never envisioned myself teaching in a Christian School. I am so thankful that 25 years ago God opened the door for me to start my teaching career in a Christian school. Now I cannot envision teaching without the freedom to openly share my faith, my love for God and to invite and encourage children to find their place in God’s story. In my years in Christian Education I have experience teaching in all of the elementary grades from Kindergarten to grade 8 as well as humbling serving as a principal for 12 years. It is a great joy each day to walk in the classroom and to spend my days learning alongside my students. Everyday is a great day to be at school!

I have always had a passion for working with children and encouraging students’ love for learning. I graduated from Brock University with a Bachelor of Arts in Child and Youth Studies. I completed my Bachelor of Education at Redeemer University, where I learned to encourage a greater understanding of God and foster a sense of awe and wonder in His creation through the teaching of curriculum. Each student that enters our school is a precious child of God, made in his image, and with a divine purpose, therefore, I believe that it is important for educators to nurture the whole child – mind, body, soul, and spirit. I am so grateful to be a part of the team of dedicated and caring educators at OCS. It brings me such joy to work with young students, learning and growing alongside them. Matthew 22:37 says, “Love the Lord your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind, this is the first and greatest commandment.” My goal is to be an example of this verse to those around me, especially my students.
