    Welcome to 4th Grade!! My name is Elise Markum and I am looking forward to a new school year! I received my degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in the Spring of 2014. In addition, I completed my masters degree in Special Education from Slippery Rock University.

    This school year our 4th grade students will have 2 academic teachers. I will be teaching ELA and Social Studies, while my team teacher (Mr. Pcola) will be teaching Math and Science. In addition to Mr. Pcola and myself, your child will be working with Ms. Saunders who is our student teacher for UPJ.

    Students will be writing in their planners daily, which will include their homework, tests, or quizzes. Please check your child's planner and folder each night for any homework or imporatant papers that they may receive. 

    If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email or call me. The best time to reach me by phone is between 7:45am - 8:15am, 9:00am -9:40am  or 3:30- 4:00 in the afternoon. 
    I am very excited to help my students grow in their education and learn to the best of their abilities. This is going to be a wonderful year for all of us!!
