Mrs. Patricia Callaghan
Welcome! My name is Mrs. Patty Callaghan and I’m very excited to be teaching fourth grade. My experiences are long and varied including teaching in central Pennsylvania, Philadelphia and Lansdowne. I came to Stonehurst Hills in 2008 as a building substitute and have held many different positions including reading interventionist, as well as several long term assignments in special education, first, and second grades. I believe each student can achieve success in school and it is my responsibility as their teacher to help them feel that experience this year. I’m joining a great, established team of teachers and look forward to a wonderful year!

Parent Math Homework Tip: Everyday your child will write down objectives and notes/examples of problems in their math notebook. This should be a resource to help them at home. If they say, they do not know how to do it, direct them to their math notebook. If they have not copied notes, please encourage your child to stay focused in math and class and copy the examples that are provided to help them. If your child has copied notes and is still frustrated with homework. Please write a note with your signature at the top of the homework letting me know your child needs extra help with that topic.
Here below is parent letter for each math chapter to give you an idea of what your child is learning in class and should be studying.
