Hi! I'm Mrs. Bonenberger, but many children call me Mrs. B. I've been teaching here at MMW since the school opened and have taught at nearly every grade level.  I'm really looking forward to my fourth year teaching third grade.  I'm thrilled to be working with third graders amongst a team of dedicated and inspiring teachers.  I adore this age group and the team of teachers with whom I plan and collaborae every day. This year we will read and discuss all kinds of literature (including Harry Potter), write, and MULTIPLY!  You'll have textbooks and homework books, too.  You may even choose to take string instrument lessons.  It's a big year!
    I live in Jenkintown, PA with my husband Mike, and two daughters.  My daughters are 8 and 9 years old, and will be in third grade and fourth grade at Jenkintown Elementary School, which is just one block from our home. Fans of the Goldbergs always get a kick out of the fact that we live in Jenkintown. My daughters are pictured below in their Harry Potter gear with our dog, Charlie.  I talk about Charlie a LOT!
    I love to read.  This summer, I hosted three book clubs for children. We read Indian in the Cupboard, Island of the Blue Dolphins, and Finding Gobi. It was my second summer hosting a book club for children, and we hope to do it again next summer with three brand new titles.  
    We took our big vacation in April during Spring Break. We took our daughters to Disney World for the first time, and it was magical.  This summer, we camped out in our backyard and did lots of reading, swimming, and arts and crafts. My younger daughter is competing in her second triathlon in just a few days, and so I spent a lot of time this summer (when it wasn't raining) running, swimming, and biking with them. I'll let you know how that goes.
