Kerry Tvrdy said, “I have taught kindergarten and middle school as well as 4th grade, and although I have enjoyed them all, I do truly love 4th graders!  They are still excited about school and new activities, and they are at the age where they are forming their own ideas and opinions about things so it is fun and interesting to see their reactions to new information… And, they are still sweet, little children.”
