3rd Grade - Shelby Cradick

Dear Grown-Ups,

My name is Ms. Cradick and I am your child's 3rd grade teacher! I am very excited for the 2022-2023 school and being able to work with your child. Alittle bit of information about my self. This will be my fourth year teaching and fourth year at Banta Elementary School. I have enjoyed meeting and working with so many wonderful people and students. I am so lucky to be able to also have my sister, Ms. Janelle, working at Banta too! I have a three year old daughter named Emma and we recently moved into our first home in Modesto! I enjoy crafting, spending time with friends and family, and continuing my education in STEM. I have attended and graduated from Modesto Junior College, California State University Stanislaus, and Teachers College of San Joaquin. Education has always been a passion of mine. I love learning new things and teaching them to my students. 

It is my goal to provide a safe, productive, and supportive learning environment where every child has the opportunity to grow academically, emotionally, and socially. I want each of my students to have a voice in our classroom and be respectful to each other. I treat my classroom as a second home and I hope my students will do the same. Communication is a extremely important in our classroom. I use ClassDojo, email, and phone. I am also available after school. I look forward to meeting your child and you this upcoming school year! 

Ms. Cradick
