I have lived in Danville for seventeen years and lived in the Bay Area most of my life.  I live at home w/my husband Brian, and two children Emma and Max. We just got a new puppy and her name is, Lucie.  Emma is off to University of Oregon this fall and Max  is a junior at  SRVHS.  In my free time I love to read, write stories and escape up to the mountains.  We have a tiny little cabin in the low sierras and it brings me SO much peace. This picture is taken right off highway four. I guess our smiles say it all!

Curiosity. . .

Curiosity. . .
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. Albert Einstein

Room 13 has the WRITE stuff!

Room 13 has the WRITE stuff!

Great writers are always writing. . .

Room 13 authors know that one never knows when a writing idea might hit them.  Whether one might be on a walk, at lunch, w/a friend or even going to bed a tiny note pad nearby at all times provides the perfect place to jot down ideas for possible stories.  Authors know ANY kind of writing makes their writing skills even sharper such as:

  • lists
  • notes
  • stories
  • letters
  • texts
  • emails
  • recipes
  • essays
  • plays
  • poems
  • post-its
  • reports

Homework Tips

Homework will be sent home everyday in your child's red homework folder.  Check your child's red folder for occasional assignments and important notes.  Homework should be completed in pencil unless directions ask for other materials.  Tasks are easiest to accomplish when tied with specific routines.  By establishing daily routines for homework completion, you will not only make homework go smoothly, but you will foster a sense of order that your child can utilize lifelong.

  • Find a location where homework can be done (a quiet place away from noise).
  • Set up a homework center (quiet space with supplies).
  • Establish a consistent homework time (pick a time that is right for your third grader and family-and keep that daily time).
