Welcome to My Classroom
Teacher: Scott Gerdes
Subject: Grade 4
Welcome to 4th Grade! Hello. I am Mr. Gerdes and this is my 15th year of teaching 4th graders here in Medina. I am very proud to be a teacher in the Medina School District and I have completely enjoyed my opportunity to teach 4th grade for these past several years.
Our 4th grade team works very well together. Mrs. Pane and I team teach for some subjects. We have combined math classes which allows for both of us to work to address the needs of our students. We also switch classes for Social Studies and Science, as I teach Social Studies to both classes, while Mrs. Pane teaches Science to her class and to mine. My goal as a teacher is to provide an environment which is both educational and fun to all of my students. Effort, Attitude, and Respect is something we stress all year long.
When I am not found teaching in the classroom, I am usually spending my time with my wife, Mrs. Gerdes, and my two children. Between sports, clubs, music lessons, and many other activities, the Gerdes family keeps ourselves very busy. During the summer, we love to travel and play. So, if you don't find us on a trip somewhere, you will probably find us playing in the backyard.
I'm sure you will learn more about me throughout the year, and I look forward to learning more about you as well. I am always easy to contact, so please feel free to email or call with any concerns or questions that you might have throughout the year. Thank you and I look forward to a very productive year.
