Mrs. Taliya

Hello Familes,


Welcome to our fourth grade classroom!


This will be my nineteenth year teaching at Rutledge. I have a Master's degree in Teaching and Leadership and I am currently working on a Master's degree in Technology. Over the years I have found a common characteristic of fourth graders. They are spirited and enthusiastic. I love teaching fourth grade. Whether it’s the daily schedule, a core subject lesson, or a recess game, they care deeply about everything. Fourth graders are ready to learn, and I am ready to help them grow. Fourth grade is a wonderful time in a student’s life. Students experience a great amount of growth this year. In fourth grade, we have very high expectations. The goal is to learn how to work independently and cooperatively, develop good study habits, and cultivate an expectation for always doing their best work.


I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
