FOURTH GRADE SUPPLY LIST
FOURTH GRADE CURRICULUM
This is Ms. Compher’s first year as a Rocket! She previously taught 3rd grade, 3rd grade advanced academics, and was a math and STEAM resource teacher with FCPS. Originally from Tampa Florida, Ms. Compher graduated from the University of Central Florida (Go Knights, Charge On!) with a degree in Elementary Education. Upon graduating she moved to the DMV to escape the heat and be closer to the mountains. After teaching for several years she began to see the value in providing integrative, hands-on learning experiences to all students, so she pursued her masters in Integrative STEM Instruction and Curriculum from Virginia Tech. In addition, she has endorsements in reading and ESOL, and a graduate certificate in gifted education. Ms. Compher loves to be outdoors and enjoys backpacking, running, and exploring new cities. She looks forward to joining the Rose Hill Community and can't wait to learn along with you!
¡Hola amigos! Thank you for being a part of this new school year. La Sra. Henderson was born in El Salvador and raised in Texas and in California. She attended the University of Southern California many years ago. Fight on Trojans! She’s been fortunate to have lived and traveled in countries all over the world. La Sra. Henderson is always looking for a great book to read or an exciting show to watch. This year she’s lucky to be teaching 4th Grade Spanish Immersion and is looking forward to getting to know her students and their families. ¡Bienvenidos y buena suerte!
My name is Jennifer Lockhart and this is my fourth year as a 4th grade teacher at Rose Hill. I earned my teaching credentials from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in 2003. I love teaching and watching my students learn and grow throughout the year! When I’m not in the classroom, I enjoy gardening, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family.

In her free time she loves reading books on her deck, spending time with family, and cheering on Pittsburgh sports teams.
