- Welcome Parents! My name is Miss Terrell and I am a product of the Upper Darby School District myself. I attended Stonehurst Hills Elementary School as a child from first to fifth grade. As a matter of fact, I teach 4th grade in the same classroom I was in for 4th grade so this school and community is very dear to my heart. It is home! To attend college, I ventured out of our community to Washington, DC to explore Howard University where I received a Bachelorís degree in Psychology. For a few years, I worked for a nonprofit organization with inner city youth before returning to school for my Masterís in Education at Cabrini University. After graduation, I found my way back home to Stonehurst Hills, where I have been working for seven years with highly qualified teachers to provide your children with the optimal education. Dr. Martin Luther King stated, “Character plus education, it is the true goal of education.” My goals as your childrenís teacher this year is to help them grow as citizens as well as reach their full academic potential. Letís work together and make this year great. Teamwork between parents and teacher is key to your childís education. Thank you for sharing your amazing kids with me!

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.
