Mrs. Locke's 3rd Grade
Welcome to Mrs. Locke's 3rd Grade!
Hello, my name is Samantha Locke and I am one of the third grade teachers here at Mary J. Tanner! Third Grade is a difficult year, it is the first year students encounter the New York State Examinations in both Mathematics and English Language Arts. Students transition from learning how to read, to reading to learn which is often quite an adjustment. We follow the Common Core Learning Standards for English Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science. I am happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have, so please, do not hesitate to contact me.
My teaching experience includes Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, First and Third Grades, along with High School Social Studies. I am permanently New York State certified in Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and Grades One thru Six, as well as, Social Studies 7-12, I received my Bachelor's and Master's degree from SUNY Plattsburgh. I am a native of the Adirondacks growing up in Johnsburg, NY, I now live on my husband's farm in West Granville. I have a daughter, Sierra, and I am a big NY Mets and NY Giants fan.
