ZMES-Building a Bridge to the Future

Welcome to 4th grade and 4B! I am super excited to be working with you this year, as we learn and grow together. Please continue reading to find out more about me and the expectations I have for our 4th graders. 

My name is Mrs. Braithwaite and this is my fourth year teaching for Zumbrota-Mazeppa Schools! I have multiple years of teaching the same age range in our area of SE Minnesota. I am married and have two little girls and a female Alaskan Husky.  My husband is Rick. My girls are Emma (9) who is in 3rd grade and Addilyn (5) in Kindergarten. Our Husky’s name is Maya and she is 8 years old. 

I hold high expectations for all my students in academics and behavior. I wish that all my students become responsible lifelong learners in the community. My students should come each day prepared, excited, and ready to learn. I promise I will share my excitement and love of science with them each day.

As I said, I am teaching science this year. Mr. Paukert will be teaching Social Studies and Accelerated Math. Ms. Smith is teaching Reading, and Mr. Cordes is teaching Math. We are an amazing team and so excited to help our students do their best. Below is the link to our protopage. This can be used to access our favorite and most used websites. 

W.I.L.D.-In case of our 2nd snow day please check your student's accordion folder for the W.I.L.D. folder. You will find instructions, activities, and my available hours in the folder.  There is also a W.I.L.D. tab on our protopage.
