Mrs. Kelly Rouse-Third Grade Teacher

Welcome to Third Grade at Patriots Elementary!  I am so excited for this year, and I hope that you feel the same.  It is going to be a great year with many fun and exciting days!  Third grade is also going to be a year of great growth for your child.  He/she is going to learn everything from multiplication to test taking strategies for the EOG.  I will be your child's teacher for all subject areas.

Because I am going to be with your child throughout the year, I thought that you might like to know a little about me.  I am originally from Ohio and moved to Charlotte 17 years ago (Go Buckeyes!!).  I have been teaching for 20 ½ years and have been privileged enough to teach Kindergarten, 3, 4, 6, and 8th grade.  I have to admit, though, that my heart is with 3rd graders!  Throughout these teaching years, I received my Masters Degree in Education and National Board Certification.  My husband, Stacy, and I have two children, Lilly (11) and Aidan (7).  Motherhood suites me and I am loving every second with them!

My job is not only to prepare your child for future endeavors, but to communicate with you about your child’s needs.  It is so important that we work together to make this year a success.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.  I look forward to the wonderful year that is ahead for all of us!
