4th Grade School Supply List

Hi! I'm Susan Seiple, this year's third and fourth grade teacher. This is my second year at Spero Academy, but my 19th year teaching. I am very excited to teach your kids and make a strong family connection with you also.

My goal is for all of the third and fourth grade students to grow academically at their individual levels, to feel successful in all that they do and in all that they try. I want them to have meaningful experiences and to learn from all of their social and emotional interactions.

We will be working hard toward the standards this year, making sure to cover as much as we can, giving them exposure to all that they deserve to know and learn. That being said, I will move at a rate that works for each individual student. Some topics related to third and fourth grade are: place value, fractions, multiplication and division; using a dictionary, comparing and contrasting, identifying key details in all texts, reading for a purpose; organizing thoughts to write creatively and editing. In science and social studies we will cover life science, energy, living systems, citizenship, history and geography. It will be a lot of fun!

Outside of school, I try to relax and enjoy biking, taking my three dogs for walks, being a mom to my 23-year-old son, and watching the Green Bay Packers. I am also close to my family and enjoy spending lots of time with them.

I am hoping for and looking forward to a fantastic year!
