Welcome to Mrs. Schoettley's home page!
Hello. I am Patti Schoettley. I have taught in Holland Public Schools for over 25 years. I taught at Lincoln and VanRaalte Elementary Schools before coming to East in 2006. I love this school! Most of my teaching has been in fourth and fifth grade, but I moved to third grade in 2010 and found a new love. I live in Hudsonville with my husband and two daughters. I love to read and spend most of my free time doing that. As a family we love to ski, swim, and ride rollercoasters.
Third grade is a great year. This is the year the kids are transitioning to "upper" elementary. Students will continue to develop their reading and writing skills. An important new math skill to be mastered this year is multiplication and division. They can look forward to some exciting units in science including motion, light, sound, plants, and animals. Our social studies topic is Michigan- we will look at the geography, economics, government, and history of our great state!
I have a class WIKI page. We will be using this WIKI page as a starting place when we use the computer lab, so your child should know their way around it. The address is: schoettley.pbworks.com
