Jessica Butay

Lead Teacher, 4th Grade Math

Hello Scholars! I'm Ms. Butay and I am the Lead teacher for 4th Grade Math ( YAY!) This will be my second year with Collegiate Hall.

I am from Honolulu, Oahu Hawai'i, and I studied Early Childhood Education. Following graduation, I served as an AmeriCorps Member/Team Leader with City Year Tulsa- City Year is an education focused, nonprofit organization that unites young people of all backgrounds for a year of full-time service to keep students in school and on track to graduation in the Tulsa area.

Fourth grade is such a fun year with so many wonderful learning activities to celebrate. In order to have a fun year, my most important goal is to create a community of learners in my classroom. I am committed to creating a classroom environment where your child is a valued, trusted, and integral part of our community of learners. In order to accomplish this, I have planned a variety of activities to emphasize and reinforce this goal. In Math, we will be a mathematicians like Albert Einstein or Katherine Johnson. Students will work with each other to use math to describe phenomena in the world around us and to answer complex questions through coming to class with curiosity, a growth mindset, and a problem-solving spirit.

I welcome and value parent involvement throughout the year. I would love to hear from you.
