Welcome to Mrs. Silva's classroom! Our classroom is structured to provide a safe and productive learning environment for all students. This is achieved early on in the year by fostering strong routines and classroom rules that are based on our school character traits: Respect, Integrity, Compassion, Self-Discipline, and Craftsmanship.
Welcome to fourth grade, a very exciting year full of growth and learning! It is my privilege to be your child’s fourth grade teacher. We will be working together throughout the year to explore some very fun and interesting topics, as well as mastering multiplication facts and paragraph writing.
My name is Jessica Silva. I grew up in the great state of Wyoming. I went to the University of Wyoming and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education. After graduating from college I moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming and taught third grade for one year before moving to Colorado Springs. After that, I was been employed by District 12 in Colorado Springs teaching second grade.
I have spent my summer getting ready for the arrival of my second child, a baby boy that is due in early July. I have also made a few trips back home to Wyoming to visit my family and spending as much time outdoors as possible.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy being outdoors with my family and friends. I like skiing but do not get to go as much as I would like. Like most of you, the mountains provide many activities for my family and I like camping, off-roading, and hiking. My 170 pound dog, Genghis, enjoys dragging me around the block, stealing my socks, my shoes and my food in our refrigerator. I love watching sports on TV even though I do not know all of the rules and regulations. When my husband is home, the TV never switches off ESPN, unless my son gets his way and then it’s Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
I began PPSEL in 2010. I am very excited to teach the same group of students this year.
