About Mr. Conger...
Position: 3rd Grade Teacher
Phone: (480) 812-6463
Welcome to 3rd grade! I'm so happy you're here. We are going to have a fun year learning some skills you'll use when you become an adult. We are going to cover multiplication, cursive handwriting, speaking to a group of people, and so much more!
My Education and Professional Background
Before and during college, I worked at a preschool academy for two years helping children learn the basics of socializing with other children of the same age, as well as lay the groundwork for basic reading, writing, and even math skills. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, I then switched to tutoring at home for students who needed more help than what virtual learning could provide. Finally graduating from the University of Nebraska at Omaha in December 2021, I began my career at Frye Elementary in the 2022/2023 school year teaching third grade.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe we never are finished learning. I believe it's an educator's job to teach children how to use their curiosity to find answers on their own. Teaching children how to learn on their own will provide them the ability to always remain flexible in their thinking, have compassion and understanding, and ultimately become productive members of society.
