Welcome to Fourth Grade Math

Hello! I am Cheryl Bartell (formerly Miss Kruer), the vice principal at Corpus Christi School. I also teach math in fourth grade. I really enjoy seeing children grow as learners. It is so much fun watching discoveries happen! I have grown up in Catholic education and feel so blessed to be a part of the Corpus family.

 



I graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a BA in Graphic Design and a minor in Art History. While at LMU, I was involved in ArtSmart where I taught students art. This is where I found my passion for teaching and seeing the wonder in students eyes. I went on to get my Masters in Elementary Education and Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential from Loyola Marymount University. This is my fifth year at Corpus.

 

 I am so excited to have you in my math class. We will explore and have fun with math.

 

Our Six guiding principles for math are:

 

All Mathematics are based on patterns.
The language of Mathematics is spoken here.
Mathematics is the pursuit of laziness.
There are no accidents in Math.
Mathematics is filled with constants.
Mathematics teaches the power to persevere.
