Welcome to 4th grade! My name is LaTanya Adelakun. This is my 1st year at Ridgegate Elementary School and I teach reading and handwriting. I'm originally from Chicago, Illinois but moved to Texas at an early age. Having taught in Fort Bend ISD for 10 years, Alief ISD for 1 year, Houston ISD for 15 years and returning to Fort Bend ISD I've taught several different grade levels and also served as a school counselor.
I believe good teachers maximize instructional learning opportunities to meet individual students' unique needs. I will impliment creative lesson plans and make learning fun and exciting. I believe in each students inner potential and will instill within them a desire for lifelong learning. My goal this year in 4th grade is to ensure that all students learn independent skills to become independent learners, thinkers and problem solvers.
During my free time I enjoy reading, riding my horse, watching action movies, being outdoors and volunteering. I love teaching!!
Lets go RANGERS!! Lets "Dive into New Adventures" together this year.
