Third Grade Team

An overview of third grade at Nottingham is below, or click here to learn more about the grade 3 teachers!

Students in this grade are issued an APS-owned Apple iPad as a tool for their personalized learning – click here for more information on this initiative.


We believe that all children can learn and be successful. Each child is an individual and should be provided the opportunity to an environment to learn at his or her own pace. We believe that each child should be given the opportunity to develop his or her best potential mentally, physically, and socially so he or she can become a productive, creative, and responsible member of society. In 3rd grade, we encourage the development of responsibility, independence, and autonomy.

Students will be occupied in a variety of individual and collaborative work designed to accommodate their diverse and individual learning styles. The third-grade curriculum will combine basic skills, authentic learning, and critical thinking.

My name is Kate, and I’ve been at Nottingham since 2018 teaching second grade and sponsoring Student Council. I am from Connecticut and went to UCONN (go Huskies!) for my undergraduate degree before earning a Masters in Elementary Education at the University of Saint Joseph. Now I live in Arlington, and when I’m not teaching I enjoy running, reading, and sticking my toes in the sand at the beach in New England. I can’t wait for an awesome school year in third grade with my Owls, it will be a HOOT!

My name is Kayla, and I am so excited about joining Nottingham as a third-grade teacher! I grew up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and moved to Arlington this July. I attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for my undergraduate degree and for my Master’s degree in Elementary Education. I love to travel, spend time with my family and friends, play Monopoly, and read books. My goal is to read 100 books this year! I am thrilled to meet everyone and get started learning!
