Congratulations! 
You are officially a 3rd grader! 


Hello!  My name is Mrs. Root and I will be your third grade teacher this year.  I hope you are ready for some fun!  I grew up in Wyoming, Michigan and went to college at Grand Valley State University.  I earned a degree in Elementary Education so that I could hang out with kids like you and teach them about our awesome world.  This is my eighth year teaching.  I love it here and know you will too!

I'm married to my wonderful husband, Nate, and we enjoy doing house projects, traveling, being outside exploring northern Michigan, and spending time with family.    

Explore this website so you can see what we'll be learning, understand how our school works, and even play cool practice games online.  Check back often and click on the NEWS BLOG tab where I will post the latest happenings in our classroom!  Another place to connect is our classroom Facebook page. 

If you are a parent or guardian, please know that I am looking forward to meeting you!  You can always e-mail me using the form below, OR call the school directly to set up an appointment.  I am always available after school should you have any questions.

Thank you for your involvement!
