WELCOME TO THIRD GRADE!
Hello! Welcome to third grade! My name is Phanida Thephrasouvanh and I am so delighted to be your child's teacher this year. This is my first year at Randolph Heights. I taught third and first grade at Captiol Hill Magnet for the past 23 years. I have been teaching third graders for the past 13 years because it is truly a MAGICAL year!
I strive to provide a nurturing and safe learning environment for all learners. We will practice social-emotional skills through MindUp, Responsive Classroom and Yoga Calm to build empathy, independence, perseverance and self-efficacy.
A little about me- I am married, my husband is Mike, we have three amazing teenagers. Liam,18 is working on a mechanical engineering degree, Olivia, 15 is a sophomore at Roseville High School, and Lucas, 14 is a freshman at Roseville High School. We have a Russian Blue cat name Ginger. We also have six backyard chickens (Rose the Roo, Beatrice, Wren, Hazel, Lucy, Betty).
I love spending time with my family at the lake, traveling and gardening. When I have a moment of free time I enjoy sewing, knitting, collecting rocks, painting, and reading.
My favorites are: beets, curry, Thai food, chai, matcha tea, house plants- especially cactus, all shades of green, 80s music, clogs, crystals and vintage fabric.
I look forward to meeting and getting to know all of you. Third graders, I know we will have a joyful year of learning together!
