Welcome to the wonderful Third Grade Academy! I am David Trofort and I am so glad to be your childs teacher. I have taught in an elementary classroom for 12 years. I have taught at the 3rd grade level for 4 years. I look forward to meeting all of you during our conferences.
Parents we are proud to announce that we have launched departmentalization in the third grade academy. Our students are very excited about the transition. Each teacher is responsible for creating engaging and differentiated plans for subject content (science, social studies, math etc.) to meet the needs of our students. Our team is responsible for providing your child with a quality education and our collective goal to exceed expectations is what we strive to achieve.

There are other educational websites that may be helpful to student learning as well.
