Mrs. Carbine's 3rd Grade Class

Welcome to Mrs. Carbine's 3rd Grade Class!
I am so excited to be teaching at Syracuse Arts Academy again this year! It is my third year at this school, but 4th year teaching. I taught one year of first grade, one year of sixth grade, and now I am at an amazing place teaching my second year of third grade!

I love teaching and I especially love when I get to watch my students grow and develop throughout the school year. It's amazing to see the progression a child can make from the beginning of the school year to the end of the school year. Third grade is a great place to be to watch growth, there is so much new learning in 3rd grade. 3rd grade is the bridge between lower elementary and upper elementary, it is jam packed with amazing learning opportunities.

A few things about me: I grew up in Layton, Utah, and I still live in Layton, Utah. I guess I am just comfortable there. I have been married nearly 15 years to my husband, Jon. He works at Hill Air Force Base in software. We have three daughters. My oldest is 13 and is in 8th grade, my middle daughter is 11 and is in 6th grade, and my youngest is 8 and is in 3rd grade. We also have a dog named Belle.

I don't have time for a ton of hobbies outside of school. I just love when I am able to spend quality time with my family. I really enjoy cleaning and organizing. I have an unhealthy addiction to diet coke and Hallmark movies! I love Disney vacations! I love going to Disneyland, but more recently, Disney World and Florida have become one of my favorite vacation spots!  My next dream is to go on a Disney Cruise (we all can dream, right?) I also love warm, sunny beaches, especially in the Caribbean. 

I look forward to having a successful year with this amazing group of kids!!
