     Welcome to Third Grade!!!  My name is Maria Hanley.  I have been teaching Third grade at Hahntown for over fifteen years.  I am very excited to share my love of teaching reading and writing with your child.  Third grade is where the children move from learning how to read to reading to learn.   My goal is to instill in your child a love for reading, writing, and learning.  I will provide your child with the foundation to become a successful independent worker.  My classroom is filled with positive learning experiences from whole group instruction, small group work, to individual instruction.  I will contact you when I need your help from home to assist with a plan for extra individual attention outside of school.  Your child will come home with a love for learning and lots of stories to share about working hard, laughing, and being a part of a caring classroom.  Please don't hesitate to contact me when you need assistance.  I'm looking forward to a great year.
