Ms. Cunningham - Fourth Grade

Welcome to Mrs. Cunningham's 4th grade classroom webpage!

Hello! I am Crystal Cunningham and I am one of the three 4th grade teachers here at Neutra. I have been teaching at Neutra since 2012 and I love to be a Jet. I am a born and raised Lemoore girl and I am active in the community. I have three active and amazing children and my husband is a Captain for Kings County Fire. My classroom is very active, loud at times and often engaging in some sort of group collaborative activity. We operate with a flexible learning model that gives the students choice and responsibility. I feel that children can learn daily from each other and the best way for them to show complete understanding of concept is to teach it to a friend. I look forward to teaching your child and helping them to be become successful learners and problem solvers.

When I am not with your bright children I am shuffling my children between dance, waterpolo, baseball and other fun activities. I co-teach the drama club and work hard on the Spring Show.  I'm looking forward to the rest of an exciting year!

This year your 4th grader will learn how to multiply using area model and distribution, the California Missions and the Gold Rush, write a narrative, opinion and informational essay and they will incorporate technology into many of their assignments!

3. Students will always try their best!
~Failure only gives us an opportunity to learn and grow ~
