4th grade Math & Science
Hello 4th-grade families,
I am Carlan Haydu and I will be your child’s fourth-grade math teacher this school year.
This is my fifteenth year teaching at Chandler Elementary. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Louisiana State University and my teaching certification from Collin College. I grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana and moved to Allen in 1999.
I have two children. My son, Aidan, is studying architecture at Texas Tech and my daughter, Avery, just graduated as an Ensign from the United States Naval Academy where she studied naval architecture and marine engineering. We also have a sweet dog named Ruby.
My goal is to create a positive classroom environment where students are engaged in what they are learning and feel safe to ask questions and express their ideas and opinions with their peers. I want them to feel empowered to be problem solvers!
We will use online resources to practice our 4th grade standards and build our math and science journals throughout the year. Your child can bring home those journals nightly to use for studying and review purposes. They just need to be brought back to school each day for new entries.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help your child reach their maximum potential. I am excited about the opportunity to know and work with your child.
By working together at home and at school, I know that we will have a wonderful and successful fourth grade school year!
