Mrs. Joanne Blum
My name is Joanne Blum and I will be your child’s fifth grade teacher this year. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a few things about myself, both professionally and personally.
As a child I grew up in Levittown and spent my school years in Neshaminy. My husband and I moved back into the area so that our children could have the same positive experiences that I have had by living in this community. We have three children: Lindsay, Amanda, and Bobby. Amanda and Bobby are currently enrolled in the Neshaminy School District and Lindsay is attending East Stroudsburg University where she will earn a degree in Middle Level Education and play field hockey. All three children are involved in many activities which include football, basketball, and field hockey. I am definitely aware of the challenges that are involved in raising a family and understand the pressures that you face with your fifth grade child.
My goal as a teacher is to help every child reach their highest potential in my classroom. I hold high expectations for my students and will do all that I can to help them meet those expectations. I believe that communication between home and school is important in order to have a successful year. You are the most important person in your child’s life and your involvement and support mean a great deal. I welcome any ideas, questions, or concerns that you might have. I look forward to an exciting and productive year!
