Welcome to Fourth Grade! I am Tammy Springli and I am very excited to be teaching your child this year. I have been teaching for a total of 31 years; 20 years in special education, 1 year as a reading teacher, and 10 years as a 4th grade teacher. I have been a Bryan Bear for 28 years. I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a dual degree in special education and elementary education. I am happily married to my husband, Bob and we have 2 grown sons. For fun I like to play golf, tennis and bike.
Fourth Grade is a fun yet challenging time for your child. They are moving from learning to read, to reading to learn independently, from basic math, to solving real world problems, from being told how to learn, to learning and working independently. Though we teach reading, math, writing, grammar, and science, the most exciting subject is Idaho History! They love to learn about the state they live in!
I consider it a great privilege and responsibility to be your child's teacher this year and look forward to an exciting year ahead.
