Welcome to Third Grade Mathematics! First, let me introduce myself. My name is Melissa Glode. I was born in Carmel, CA, but only stayed there until I was five months old. After that, my parents moved to Germany, which is where I grew up. I met and married my husband Michael in Germany and the first time I lived in the US was in October 1998. Since then we have moved back and forth to Germany and the US numerous times. Now, my husband will soon be ready to retire from the military and we are settling in San AntonioJ. As you can probably guess, my husband is active duty military and we are stationed here in San Antonio. We have two beautiful boys, Mickey (15) and Mattie (10). My family keeps me on my toes everyday. I have my bachelor’s degree in management from University of Maryland and my Master’s Degree in elementary education from the University of Phoenix.

 Third grade mathematics is a wonderful place to be, We will be doing small groups, independent learning, and guided mathematics. I look forward to working with you to ensure your child gets the most out of this school year, academically and socially. I will give homework Monday through Thursday. Please have your child turn in homework daily to promote accountability and to reinforce what they are learning in school. My teaching philosophy is based on the idea that every child can learn and that teachers need to discover how each child learns best. I believe in awakening and maintaining student interest in learning.

 I primarily believe in positive reinforcement, consisting of smiles, verbal praise, stickers, happy notes, treats, and free choice time. In some cases, negative consequences are necessary. These consequences are warnings, think time, partial loss of recess or free choice time.
