Teacher Bio

  
 
     My name is  Janet Arredondo and I am a 4th grade teacher at John H. Shary Elementary. My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique, and each child learns in a different way. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help a child discover his or her individuality and work alongside with them to maximize it.  I believe in hands-on experiences, learning creatively, and learning through play. It is my goal to create a community of learners who are committed to working hard and having fun. I want students to leave my classroom feeling confident that they can apply what they've learned in school to real-life situations. I want my students to feel challenged and to have an enhanced passion for learning. 
   I strongly believe that collaboration, cooperation, and open communication between home and school are keys to building a strong foundation for a successful school year. So, please feel free to contact me at any time.
