My name is Michelle Contreras and I am very excited to be teaching your child this year!  I have taught both third grade and kindergarten for the past 13 years, but 11 of those years have been in kindergarten. I love it!  I have a BS in Elementary Education, an MA in Education, and I'm TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) endorsed. It is my goal to make your child's first year of school one that will instill in them a love for learning.They will discover that they can learn in many different ways and that it can be fun!  Thank you for sharing your child with me every day.

We're really enjoying reading the book, The One and Only Ivan! Our class depicted their summary of a chunk of the book where Ivan remembers an event from when he was just a young gorilla living with Mack.  They worked so well together and are very proud of their completed project!

Parent Teacher Conferences

Dear Families,

It is time for the 2016-17 Quality of Education Family Survey. Chelwood is looking for 100% participation for our Family Survey, up from the 26% return rate we had last year. As a thank you for your time we would like to offer you a 2 for 1 Sunday Spaghetti Dinner from Mario's Pizzeria at 11500 Menaul NE. There will be a Family Survey outside classroom doors for you to complete. Please allow 5 minutes before or after your conference time to fill it out. Return your completed survey to the Atrium where we will exchange it with the spaghetti dinner coupon. We would really appreciate your support.  Thank you!
