Chariho Employee of the Month: Shelly McGlinsey
Mrs. McGlinsey is a fourth grade teacher at Richmond School. She is a talented teacher who engages her students with song, poetry and movement. In her classroom, students are valued and motivated by her compassion and high expectations. Her students learn to be creative writers, researchers and readers.
She tracks students' homework and makes them accountable for completing it.
With the support of our special educators, she has been responsible for moving struggling students forward in leaps and bounds in both ELA and mathema
tics. She keeps careful RTI records and is open to trying new approaches to
improve student achievement. Her students' families appreciate how often she communicates with them via website, phone calls, emails and meetings.
She is highly collaborative and works well with the members of her fourth grade team and with other teachers and staff in our building. She is positive and offers suggestions for improving our school using a problem solving approach.
Congratulations, Mrs. McGlinsey!

Number bonds show the ways in which numbers relate to each other. They can also be thought of as “part-whole” pictures, in which you see two or more parts that make up a whole.
