Hi 3rd grade students and families! This is my 15th year at Enterprise! I love our school community! I am excited about all the new possibilities this school year will bring! I can’t wait to get to meet you all and build our partnership.

I love spending time with my family. Families are super important in our personal development and I look forward to getting to know all my students' families. I am a huge sports fan!!! I love all the hometown teams (Washington Football Team, Washington Nationals, USA Soccer teams, Washington Wizards, Washington Capitals, etc.)  

Please feel free to contact me at any time at mcleodts@pwcs.edu

Welcome to third grade!  I'm Mrs. Croyle and I have the pleasure of teaching your special student this year.  It will be an adventure during which we will learn and grow together.

I am from a family of educators and have 15 years of experience. I proudly joined PWCS in 2018 to assist my parents as they age. My husband and I have three children and two grandchildren will arrive in before the end of the 2020. My hobbies include:  reading, thrift store shopping, beach visits, and working outdoors.

I'm honored to become partners with you as your child's teacher.
 

Please feel free to contact me at any time at croyleca@pwcs.edu

Hi students and families! 
This is my third year at Enterprise, and I've been teaching third grade this whole time! I'm so excited for this new year-- it'll be an interesting one! 

I love learning about animals, making t-shirt designs, and reading.
This summer, I went camping in some national parks and saw the beauty of America's landscape firsthand.
Pictured above is me at Badlands National Park in South Dakota! (I'm glad we have cars now-- that land would have been pretty bad for a European explorer!)

Please feel free to contact me at any time at spiegel1@pwcs.edu








Email us in whichever language you are comfortable-- we can translate it! 
If you would like to chat over the phone, please let us know and we can work out a time to meet that works for you. If you would like an interpreter, we're happy to arrange that too.

Tips for Virtual Learning

  • Store all your materials in the same place so you can find them  a stack of books with an apple on top
  •  Try to find a quiet place to work and meet with the class
  • a magnifying glass with a question mark inside Tell your teacher if you need help with an assignment or your technology
  • Keep water nearby and stay fueled up with snacks throughout the day    a sandwich  a water bottle
  • Take your learning seriously! This is going to be an unusual year, but it will be a great opportunity to learn a laptop computer with a book going into the screenat your own pace and dive into things you find interesting :)
