Mission Statement for 4th Grade Classroom

In West Hardin’s fourth-grade classrooms, we are dedicated to fostering a nurturing and empowering environment that nurtures both educational and social-emotional growth. Our mission is to develop well-rounded students who not only excel academically but also thrive as compassionate and confident individuals.

Education Growth

We want to develop lifelong learners in our classroom. Fourth grade is a place where curiosity is celebrated, questions are encouraged, and every student is motivated to become an essential team member on our educational journey. We instill higher-order thinking through a variety of teaching methods. Our mission is for every student to achieve everything of which they are capable. 

Social-Emotional Growth

We understand students face many challenges in their everyday life. It is our mission to provide a safe and supportive environment for students in which to learn.
