Hello, Brentwood!  I’m the LRC teacher, Mrs. Sullivan.  I work with students in grades K-5 as part of their specials rotation.  This year is my first year in the LRC, and I’m having so much fun!  We will be doing so many things during our time together: learning to use technology safely and responsibility, creating projects, developing our love of reading, and researching our wonders and interests.  It is my hope that every student loves to come to the LRC and that what we do during our short time together will help students become life-long learners, thinkers, dreamers and creators.  I can’t wait to see where the year takes us!
