Hi my name is Lesley Bolz and I teach 3rd and 4th grade.  The 2015-2016 school year will be my 9th year here at Grandview-Hopkins.  I have taught 3rd and 4th grade every year since I started here and I even taught 2nd grade one year too.  Before coming to Grandview-Hopkins I worked at Lamar Elementary in the Pampa ISD for half a year as AT-Risk Interventionist (all grade levels).

I was born, raised, and graduated from Pampa.  I did move away from Pampa while attending college.  I went to West Texas A&M University (WTAMU) and graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies.  I am certified in early childhood up through 4th grade.  While I was going to school, I worked part-time as a preschool teacher for 2 years and I also did substitute teaching for Amarillo ISD around 1 year and a half.  I have worked with all different age levels of children and have personal experience as a parent too.  I have one son who is in 4th grade this year at Grandview-Hopkins.

My goals and expectations as a teacher is that every student who leaves my class leaves with a new perspective on learning.  I want students to be more than prepared for the next grade level, and be self-disciplined life-long learners.  I believe for students to reach their full potential of success they must have a strong foundation, a support system and a positive environment.  If a student has gap in their learning, I go back and assess the difficulty and put an individual plan into action.  I back up to the basics to help catch the student up so that we can re-build the foundation.  I also am a firm believer that the parent-teacher relationship is a vital component for ultimate success with each student.  Whether a student is behind, advanced, or falls somewhere in the middle the parents and the teacher must work together towards a shared vision for each student.  Lastly, I feel it is necessary that the atmosphere in the classroom is a place where students feel safe, comfortable, and encouraged.  When students have a classroom that gives them a warm inviting home feel they will accelerate and advance right along through their curriculum.  I also believe they grow confidence in themselves when they know that their ideas, question, thoughts, and suggestions are welcomed as part of the everyday classroom routine.

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT YEAR!!
