Third Grade Rocks, Welcome Back!
Welcome back to another fabulous and exciting school year. My name is Mrs. Connelly and I am a native of Philadelphia, PA. I was raised in the city of Philadelphia and had the pleasure of receiving an inner city education. I attended the University of Memphis where I received a BS in education. I have several years experience as a classroom teacher ranging from elementary school to high school. I have also had the pleasure of teaching in my native Philadelphia, Memphis, and Phoenix, AZ. I am no stranger to teaching third grade ( I prefer it) as this is my third year teaching third grade. I love teaching with a passion and enjoy every opportunity to educate and inspire any child towards the greatest version of themselves. I am looking forward to getting acquainted with your child and you as the year progresses.
Harriet Tubman didn’t take no stuff Wasn’t scared of nothing neither Didn’t come in this world to be no slave And wasn’t going to stay one either “Farewell!” she sang to her friends one night She was mighty sad to leave ‘em But she ran away that dark, hot night Ran looking for her freedom She ran to the woods and she ran through the woods With the slave catchers right behind her And she kept on going till she got to the North Where those mean men couldn’t find her Nineteen times she went back South To get three hundred others She ran for her freedom nineteen times To save Black sisters and brothers Harriet Tubman didn’t take no stuff Wasn’t scared of nothing neither Didn’t come in this world to be no slave And didn’t stay one either And didn’t stay one either
