Mrs. Yvonne Burton-Smith
I'm Mrs. Burton-Smith. I've been a teacher in the Pittsburg Unified School District for 19 years. Third grade is a wonderful transitional year in which students move from learning to read to reading to learn. Together we explore a world of fiction and non-fiction literature, one paragraph writing stretches into five paragraphs, and math involves concrete, relational, and abstract thinking. In third grade school takes on a rhythm that will last through grade twelve.
