Welcome to 3rd Grade!
Hi, I’m Ms. LaMunyon!
Teaching is an absolute passion of mine! I am so excited to work with you and your child! It’s going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us! The first day of school is August 23rd, 2021 and we will have a chance to meet on August 19th (times will be shared soon) during Meet the Teacher Night. Before we meet, I thought you may like to know a little bit about me...
I am a mom of two. My son, Jake, is 21 and my daughter, Lauren, is 19 and they are pretty spectacular! I spend most of my time with my family and friends, but some hobbies that I enjoy are reading, playing games, and cooking!
This will be my 8th year teaching and my 5th year at McGee's Elementary! I am especially excited to be looping up with my students from last year, meeting all of my newest students, and to be team teaching with one of my best friends and a phenominal teacher, Mrs. Thomas! I will teach Math and Science while Mrs. Thomas teaches English Language Arts and Social Studies.
Prior to becoming a mom, I served in the United States Army for four years. After the military, I decided to stay at home with my children. Once both of my children were in school, I went back to school and became a teacher. I absolutely LOVE teaching! It is my goal to instill a love for learning and reading in my students. We will be focusing on growth mindsets this year. As explained by Carol Dweck, having a growth mindset means that your child will “believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point.” I want to help your child believe in their own abilities and that, even if something presents a struggle, they realize it isn’t something they simply cannot do, but it is something they cannot do YET and will be a goal that they will eventually accomplish.
