Welcome to 3rd Grade!
Hi my name is Mrs. Donovan, and I would like to officially welcome you to third grade! I am looking forward to working and learning with you and your family this year. I am excited to get to know each of you and to help you grow academically and socially. This year we will focus on being flexible, working as a team, and taking care of each other.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I have been teaching for 32 years. I taught first grade for 28 years and moved to third grade 4 years ago. My husband and I have been married for 30 years and have 3 children. Jaime is an Elementary Guidance Counselor, Shane is a Senior Analyst at SEI, and Michael is a High School Social Studies teacher. In my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy riding my bike, playing pickle ball, and spending time down the shore.
I hope you are having a fun summer, and I can’t wait to hear all about your adventures. We are going to have a great year together and learn a lot from one another. Remember we are Newtown Knights! We are accepting of others, welcome diversity, demonstrate empathy and always do our very best. I know this year we will continue to do the same and I am here to help and support you in any way possible.
I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you all very soon. In just a short time we will begin an enriching and fun experience for all of us. I can’t wait to get started!!
Enjoy the rest of the summer!
Mrs. Reen Donovan
