WELCOME to the 2019-2020 school year and third grade! My name is Emily Iwata and I am absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to work with you and your children this year. Third grade is a very important year for the children; it is as much academic preparation for a higher level of learning, as it is a time of approaching various developmental and social changes as well. My personal philosophy of education is that teaching is not only about effectively conveying subject matter and the desire to learn, but about guiding maturing young adolescents along the way. My goal for the year is to build an open and positive learning environment that will enable us to foster well-rounded proactive students.
I am excited to partner with you in your child’s education. I am always open to meeting with you regarding concerns or questions you may have about your child’s progress. I feel that communication between parents, students, and teacher, are essential to a student’s success in school.

MSJE is known for its tight-knit community and I’d like to thank you ahead of time for your active interest in your child’s education. I hope you all enjoyed your summer and are ready for a great 3rd grade year!
