Mrs. Susan Backus

I have been teaching 25 years and each year my goals and objectives are to help each and every student achieve their highest potential. Every student will be successful because working together we can make it happen.
I like to keep parents informed about the progress their children are making and welcome communication from home. I can have phone conversations at a time which is convenient to all.

I do not usually give homework, but I require all students to read at least 30 minutes every night.  They should all have an independent reading book.  If they do not have one they can get one from my library or the school's library.  The students can also bring a book of their choice in from home, provided it is approved by their parent.

I look forward to working with you and your child for a successful school year.
