Welcome to 6th Grade
Hi my name is Connie Halfpop. This year I begin my 34th year of teaching. It seems like just yesterday I stepped foot in my first classroom. My first teaching job was in Graettinger Iowa where I taught 5-8 Language Arts/Reading from Dec. - May. (I had just graduated from ISU that Decemember. The next fall I began as a Title I reading teacher for 1st and 2nd grade in Ottumwa, Iowa. After that year I taught 1st grade for 2 years and then 2nd grade for 2 years in Warsaw, Indiana. Then I moved to Belmond. (This is the place I call home because I graduated from High School here.) I have taught in Belmond since 1988. My assignments have included Kindergarten, First Grade, Multiage 1-2, School Improvement Coordinator, and 6th grade Language Arts/Reading Teacher. I love all the grades I have taught, knowing that each child is special and each age brings new experiences.
I feel that my main role in 6th grade is to help children develop a greater love/appreciation for the written word. While in 6th grade your child will explore lots of different genres of reading and experience reading in new and different ways. I hope that throughout the year we can find just the right books for your child as I have quite a collection of all kinds of texts.
Remember that is my job to expose your child to new challenges and give him/her all kinds of ways to become successful. I am here to assist you at every turn and hope that you will step up to help me to help your child.
Please reach out through a phone call, and e-mail or a visit so that we can best serve your child.
