My name is Amy Biggs. I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia and moved to Coeur d’Alene in 2002. I have been teaching in area public schools since 2007, and I am so excited to be at Ramsey Magnet School of Science! I have had the opportunity to teach previously at Athol Elementary and Silver Hills Elementary. I decided to get my teaching certificate after spending 4 ½ years directing Noah’s Ark Learning Center. I also taught English as a Second Language classes in West Africa for two years! I have a husband and three boys, two of whom go to Ramsey. I love to camp, spend time with my family, and explore the Northwest.
We will be learning many exciting things in 4th grade. This curriculum is fast paced, fun, engaging, task oriented, and proven to be successful. Regular classroom attendance and arriving to school on time is crucial in order to make the most of our classroom learning time. As we move from learning to read to reading to learn, this will be a challenging and exciting year for all of us, but I know that your child can and will succeed!
As a fourth grade team, we teach with a hands-on approach to mathematics and science. Your child will learn through exploration and experiences. They will discover subjects through project based learning and writing. By allowing the students to work with their hands and then write about it, they will engage in discussion and have increased interest in school.
As your child’s teacher this year I believe that our communication is essential as we work together to provide the best learning environment and growth possible for your child. You are ultimately the expert on your child. I’ll be looking to you for ideas about how to help make your child’s school year successful. Please feel free to call me at school or email me any time you have any questions or concerns.

Please talk to your child about how these play into their day at school in the classroom, in the cafeteria, on the playground, and at home as well.
