Welcome to FIFTH Grade!
My name is Sandra Martindell and I will be your child’s teacher this year!! I currently live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania with my husband Joe, my beautiful 18-year-old daughter Haley Ryan, who just started her freshman year at Penn State!!!!(ahhhh...I have a daughter in college) and my adorable 14-year-old son Joey. I grew up in Bucks County and graduated from Rider University. Shortly after graduating, I obtained a teaching position in a private school where I taught Kindergarten for three years. I then completed my graduate work and I am now beginning my 18th year at Klockner School!
It is my job to foster your child’s interests and abilities throughout the year. It is a time of not only learning new skills, but also learning about bright new world experiences. I believe in allowing your child to enjoy these experiences without fear of mistakes. We learn together that mistakes are half the fun of learning! I feel that a safe, nurturing atmosphere allows your child a confident journey through their elementary educational experience.
I also believe that strong communication between parent and teacher is necessary for your child’s success. I will send home notes alerting you of information that I feel needs your attention. There will be a Back-to-School-Night and scheduled parent/teacher conferences where we will have a chance to meet and discuss our class and your child. Please do not feel that these are the only chances to contact me. If you ever have a concern or question please write a note, email or call me. I will gladly give you all the help I can! I am very excited for our new school year to begin! Get ready for some fun, silly and stimulating teachable moments as we watch your children reach their goals and continue to become successful learners!
