Hi! My name is Marcie Boyce and I will be teaching your child this year. Welcome to fifth grade at Custer Elementary.
I have been teaching the upper elementary grades at Monroe Public Schools for sixteen years; this is my eleventh year at Custer. I received my Bachelor of Science degree of Education with minors in French, Science and Mathematics at Western Michigan University. I also have my Masters in the Art of Teaching degree from Marygrove College.
Like you, I have high expectations for your child. I would like to help him/her throughout the year develop a love of learning. I have a strong desire for your child to be supportive of the other students in our class. I want my students to realize they can reach their full potential, especially with the help of others. I know if we work together as a team- parents, children, and teacher we can accomplish these goals.
I love to come to Custer everyday to teach your child. I respect and take each child very seriously. Likewise, I expect the same respect and cooperation from your child.
I am very excited to begin a new year with you and your child. I will send a newsletter, "Just the Facts," home every two weeks with your child’s progress in class attached. I am looking forward to working with you this year and I will do practically anything to help your child succeed. If you need anything let me know through a note, email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call school at 265-4342.
