years of experience being in the classroom, Mrs. Mickey’s love and enthusiasm
for her students and their success is indisputable. She describes third grade as a “transition”
year, during which students become more responsible and independent. Her “Measure Your Effort” chart lets her
students know that she cares and believes in them and expects 100% effort from
each and every one. Students understand
the expectations and have been overheard supporting their peers by saying, “I

is an exciting year of learning multiplication strategies, practicing the steps
of the informative writing process, and preparing to take the PSSA’s for the
first time. Students will be studying
important figures in history who persevered, such as Rosa Parks and Ruby
Bridges, to reinforce that they can do anything they set their minds to. Mrs. Mickey's class is always measuring their efforts as they tackle new concepts, and as we know at Greensburg Salem, "Effort Creates Ability!"
With the guidance of Mrs. Mickey, her hard-working, motivated third graders will be prepared for the challenges, expectations, and
new successes of becoming a fourth grade student of Metzgar Elementary!
