Hi Featherstone Families! 

I know that this situation is a challenge and we are all figuring out how to continue learning
during this time out of school, but I know that if we all keep

READING and THINKING and WONDERING and DREAMING,

we will all keep our hearts, hands and minds busy while we are home!  

I have discovered lots of fun activities we can all do - 
so go to the LINKS page to see what fun you can have while learning
cool stuff!

I miss you all and would rather be at school with you every day. 
I hope you all are safe and healthy - and washing your hands!

Remember how important each of you are to your Featherstone Family!  We all love you! 

Keep learning!

Love, 
Mrs. Shepard

 Hello, Featherstone Families!  I am Laura Shepard and this year I am teaching 3rd and 4th grade English Language Learners.  I am teaching reading, writing, and speaking in small groups during their Language Arts block. 

Each group receives 45 minutes each day of intensive language study.  My students develop their English proficiency while also learning content material in Science, Math, Social Studies and Technology. 

I grew up in Maine, but have spent my adult life living in Massachusetts, Florida, and California and Virginia.

 It has been my dream to teach since I was a child, and, after switching careers, I have found my passion working with students who are learning English as an additional language.

Thank you for checking out my page and if you are a parent of one of my students,
THANK YOU for the privilege of teaching your child!
