• Mr. Webster's 4th Grade Class

    OCT. 31, 2023 / el 31 de octubre

    We acknowledge that Glencoe Elementary sits upon traditional land of  the Clackamas, Cowlitz, Chinook and other tribes, some of which are now in the  Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde. We want to respect and honor them by taking care of this land. 

    Class Reminders:
    * Please make sure your child brings back their charged Chromebook daily.
    * Remember that we're not bringing costumes to school on Halloween.
    * If the district causes a strike, your child will have their Chromebook at home, and they will have access to Learning Ally (a reading tool), Book Creator (a writing program) and I-Ready Math, which has My Path lessons (based at each child's individual level) and also I-Ready math games that help build math skills.
    * I will be locked out of anything PPS, so I can't email or communicate with our families, until the strike is over and the district lets us have access to our PPS access again.

    What were we doing...

    --About Me--

    My goal is to bring a slice of the outside world to my students, and help them advance their educational pathway. With more than three decades working in Education, I've taught in Minnesota, Oregon, Africa and Central America before coming to Glencoe. This school has a great staff, students who are generally self-motivated to learn, and so many supportive parents concerned with student progress and achievement. I've spent over two decades as a 4th grade teacher at Glencoe..

    I have a Master's of Arts in Teaching degree from Willamette University and a Bachelor of Arts degree from OSU. I enjoy reading, playing music (guitar, piano and drums) and writing. I have published a fantasy trilogy (The Tarra Tales), which can be found in our school library. My wife is an area director for North Clackamas School District, and we have three children: son Kyle is a university professor in Poughkeepsie, NY; Janet is enjoying the artist life in NYC; and Bryan is a junior at U. of O.
