Welcome!

Welcome to 4th grade writing! I am so excited to have your child in my class this year. Writing is a place where reading, grammar, vocabulary and CREATIVITY all come together and become a magical wonderland. I hope your student has as much fun with writing as I do teaching it. Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have at doolana@rcschools.net or (615) 904-6715!
