About Me

Welcome to fourth grade English Language Arts and Social Studies! My name is Jennifer Ramsey and this is my first year in my own classroom. I graduated from TWU this past May and student taught in Northwest ISD.  I have heard glowing recommendations about Krum ISD so am excited to begin my journey here.  Fourth grade was one of my fondest memories growing up and contributed to my desire to become a teacher.  My grandmother was also a fourth grade teacher during her career, so it holds a special place in my heart.

 

I have been married to my husband (Wes) for 14 years and we have two children, Lyla (11) and Nora (7).  Our family has an English Bull Terrier (Groot) as well as a turtle and fish.  We have lived in Denton for 13 years, but I have lived in the DFW area my entire life.  I enjoy binging Netflix (during breaks and summer), reading, and traveling.

 

In fourth grade this year we have a large focus on reading comprehension, written expression, Texas history, and personal responsibility.  Our team sends out weekly newsletters through ParentSquare with our learning goals and any other pertinent information.  Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions about your child's progress in class.

 

My conference time is 9:15 am until 10:05 am daily. 

I can be reached through ParentSquare or email at jennifer.ramsey@krumisd.net

 

It is my classroom goal to have a comfortable, positive learning environment where every child can grow both socially and academically. I believe school and learning should be fun, and learning is most effective when the teachers, parents, and students work together. It takes all of us working together to ensure our children grow up treating others respectfully and always eager to learn new things. To guide us to our goal, my classroom expectations involve five basic principles:

 

1) Listen and follow directions.

2) Display appropriate behaviors in class.

3) Show responsibility for your work.

4) Respect yourself and others as individuals.

5) Always try your best.

 

Students will take home their planners daily. It is their responsibility to record their weekly spelling words and any other homework or important information in their planner.  Homework aside from studying spelling words is limited in my class.  However, classroom assignments are provided to help students master their learning objectives, and are expected to be turned in on time. If classroom time is not utilized effectively, students have an option of finishing any incomplete assignments after other assignments are complete, or during LACK time on Friday afternoon.  We appreciate your assistance in helping your child to be responsible for their learning. 

 

In addition to a planner, your child will have a daily conduct folder.  Classroom behavior will be monitored and any significant issues will be communicated. Inside the folder you will find behavior comments from the day, as well as your child’s completed and graded work, notes from the office, and community flyers. Please take the time to look through this folder carefully and go over your child’s work with him/her. Give praise and encouragement in areas of progress and talk about ways to improve!
