Mrs. Pamela Wade - Fourth Grade

Wade pic

This is my fifth year teaching at Southern Highlands Preparatory School. I have lived in Las Vegas for 16 years and I have been teaching for 18 years. I graduated from Grand Canyon University with a BA degree in Theater/Speech and a minor in Bible. I received my teaching certification for K-12 from Northern Arizona University. I love teaching and interacting with children of all ages. I am married and have many wonderful grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, needle point, knitting, and watching old movies.

Fourth Grade is a transitional year and I encourage the students to be responsible. Honorable character will be discussed, modeled and encouraged in all areas of study.   The students will continue to learn about the beautiful world around them through our study of Life Science, Physical Science, Earth Science and then about themselves.  The history of Nevada will be explored to find out what makes Nevada so unique.  Their vocabulary and comprehension will expand through reading and writing.  Partnering with parents and families is a wonderful way to insure that each and every student is successful.
