    Dear Parents,                                                                                                                            September, 2018
    I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.My name is Kim Tracey, and I have been teaching at Columbia for over 18 years.My background includes a B.A in Psychology from Marist College and a Masters Degree in Teaching from Fairleigh Dickinson University.My experiences have provided me with the insight to keep students motivated and challenged, while having fun learning.I am the reading teacher for the Gold Team.  This year we will be reading various types of literature and nonfiction.  Students will read independently, as a whole class, in small groups, and in pairs.  Your support at home will ensure a successful sixth grade year. My goal is that in addition to learning subject content material, my classroom is a place where children develop organization, responsibility and independence.  PowerSchool is a valuable tool for monitoring your child's progress, along with this school website. I am looking forward to working with your child, as well as with you, throughout this new school year.  Never hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns, especially if your child is experiencing a problem. I can be reached by email at ktracey@bhpsnj.org, or you can always call the school.I will be sure to get back to you as soon as I can.
    Sincerely,
    Mrs. Kim Tracey
