Meet Mrs. Drury

Welcome to the 4th grade in Room 4! I am so excited to start another year at Rheem! I have been teaching for a little over 13 years, the past 8 years here at Rheem. The other 5 and a half years in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District.  In San Ramon I taught 4th  grade and 5th grade, as well as a specialized science lab.  Although I did not grow up in Moraga myself, I have been a part of the community through my in-laws for the past decade.  My husband’s family has made Moraga a second home for me; a community I am happy to now be contributing to.  (I attended every Campolindo graduation from 2003 – 2012, along with many sporting events, farmers markets, and fireworks on the golf course.) 

I am excited to be a Rheem parent as well as teacher; my older  daughter is in 5th grade, my 2 sons attend JM in 6th and 8th grades, and my youngest will be joining the Rheem team in Kindergarten this year.  My 4 children keep me busy at home, and remind me of why my job is so important when I am at school.  I truly love teaching students how to succeed at and have enthusiasm for learning.  I believe it is important to educate children in a manner that promotes a life-long interest in learning, including the ability to question and problem solve. 

Again, I welcome you to the 4th grade in room 4, and look forward to getting to know all of you and your children. Please feel free to contact me, email is best, and I will get back to you at my earliest convenience.

Smarter Balanced Testing

The SBAC tests are untimed, but based on the estimated testing times, students will be working on the test for 45 – 60 minutes a day during their assigned weeks.  Specific testing times each day will be determined by each classroom teacher.  Please avoid scheduling appointments during the weeks that are designated for your child’s grade level.

To learn about the types of questions on the computer-based test, you and your child can view the practice test.
