Welcome to fourth grade at Shadybrook Elementary School! My name is Mrs. Bristol and I will be your child’s teacher this year. This will be my seventh year teaching at Shadybrook, and my sixth year teaching fourth grade. I followed my passion for working with children after several years in another career – practicing law! While most people think that the two fields are completely unrelated, I find that I am utilizing a lot of the same skills in a much more fulfilling setting. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two dogs and two cats. We are animal lovers and we often volunteer and foster with a local rescue group. I also enjoy traveling, spending time outdoors, kayaking, and you can usually find me with a book (or Kindle) in my hand.
I am very excited about the upcoming school year and look forward to making fourth grade a wonderful learning experience for your child. We have a lot to accomplish this year, which means hard work on all of our parts. Of course, we will sprinkle in fun along the way. We are a team, and I have high expectations for all of us. With hard work, respect for others, and kindness, we are sure to have a successful year.
Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions, concerns, or just to chat about your child. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 819-2950.
