Mrs. Connie Courtright
I became a teacher because I believe that all children deserve a high quality education that will enable them to make the most of their talents and abilities. I joined the A. Dorothy Hains Elementary School family in 2005 and have served in several roles through my years here: second grade teacher, instructional coach, and first grade teacher. For the 2018-19 school year it is my pleasure to teach third grade. I am looking forward to guiding students to become THRIVING THIRD GRADERS! This will be an exciting chapter for students as they become more independent readers, write in cursive, learn about fractions, the multiplication and division of whole numbers, and so much more.
Students may begin this grade with feelings of nervousness because at the end of the school year, they will take the Georgia Milestones Assessment in ELA and Math. As we go through the year, students should gain self-confidence that they will be prepared for "the big test." The work we do beginning from day one of school, will focus on what is required of them at the end of the year. Please make excellent attendance a top priority for your student so that they are set up for success.

Most parents should be familiar with Class Dojo from last year. You will receive a message to join this year's class on the cell phone number that you provide. In the event that you change phone numbers during the year, please notify me at once. If you have never used Class Dojo, I am happy to help you get started. This tool lets you keep a check on your child's behavior, see class announcements, special recognitions, and contact me more readily. This does not replace phone calls, and conferences, it just makes it easier to communicate without having to wait for planning period or after school. Also, there will be some new features this year (that the students and I will learn together) that will let your child share work with you.
