Welcome to Fourth Grade! My name is Susan DeGraw and I am excited to be your child's teacher. I have worked in the Coeur d'Alene School District since 2001. This is my 4th year teaching 4th grade at Bryan Elementary. I graduated from the University of Idaho and have three children.I consider it of prime importance that you be an active part of your child's education. You are invited to telephone me, e-mail me, or visit the school any time that you have a question concerning your child's education. The district's family access provides parents or guardians with access to real-time student information. Parents are able to check grades, monitor attendance, and have a quick link to my e-mail address.In addition to academic growth, two important goals for fourth graders are to develop and utilize good organizational skills and to grow in independence and responsibility about their studies and problem solving abilities.I consider it a great privilege and responsibility to be your child's teacher this year and look forward to an exciting year ahead.
