Mrs. Durden- Fourth Grade


Welcome to fourth grade at Black River Elementary! This is my twentieth year of teaching at Black River. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree for elementary education (K-8) from the University of Akron. I also have a reading endorsement certificate (K-12). I received my Master's degree in education, with a specialization in elementary reading and literacy, from Walden University. I have a son who is in second grade.  In my spare time I read, write poetry, and enjoy family time. 

I will be your child’s teacher for all subjects.  Mrs. Lewis will also be in our classroom during writing time.  Mrs. Workinger will help in our classroom too.  The best way to reach me is through email.  My email address is [email protected].  

Fourth Grade Content

Our fourth grade classrooms are learning communities driven by respect, equity, and consistency. We hold high expectations for every student while encouraging students to take risks, make mistakes, encounter new learning, and ask questions to increase their knowledge.

In fourth grade students will focus on a variety of Ohio standards.  Some of our most important standards are:
Language Arts
Fiction and nonfiction comprehension, writing multi-paragraph essays relating to texts and research, and exploring a variety of genres in texts.
Multiplication and long division, fractions, decimals, geometry, metric units, and solving multi-step word problems.
Social Studies
Map skills, Native Americans, government, economics, founding of our country, and civil war.
Scientific method, Earth surfaces, fossils, living things, and energy.
