About Mrs. Updegraff
Hello! My name is Mrs. Updegraff and I will be teaching the Gifted and Talented classes while Mrs. Riley is on maternity leave. I am excited to meet all of you and join you in discovering new things together.
I want to make sure that all G&T students know that their class schedules and routines will remain the same. Classroom expectations will also remain the same, so please make sure you come to class ready to learn. When Mrs. Riley comes back in February, you will have so much to share with her!
I also want to let all families know that communication will remain the same. I will send messages through the same Remind account so there is no need to sign up again. I will also be posting directly to this website so that you can continue to find homework assignments and see what your child is learning in class.
I thought you might like to know a little about me. I spent many years as a music teacher before becoming an elementary teacher. I live nearby in North Brunswick with my husband, 11 year old daughter Cassie, and 7 year old twins Hannah and Nathaniel. We love to spend time as a family doing things like bike riding, baking, and watching movies. I am excited to learn more about each of you!
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I return emails as quickly as possible. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
