Welcome to Mrs. Batte’s Third Grade Class



Dear Parents and Students,

     Welcome to third grade! I consider it a great opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful community of parents and students here at Byrd Elementary.  I am looking forward to working with each of you to help make this a successful school year. 

     I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  I am an Aikenite.  I have lived in Aiken County my entire life.  Growing up, I attended Millbrook Elementary, Kennedy Middle School, and South Aiken High School.  I then graduated from the University of South Carolina Aiken with a degree in Elementary Education.  I am in my fifteenth year of teaching.  Fourteen of those years have been spent teaching third grade, which is my absolute favorite! In my spare time, I enjoy singing, dancing, crafting, going out to eat, and spending time with my friends and family.  I live in Warrenville with my husband (who is a physical therapist), and we have one daughter (who is starting third grade, also…I can’t believe it!).

     I would like to tell you that I will do my very best in educating your child.  I would also like to tell you that I consider the education of your child a team effort.  Children succeed when parents and teachers work together.  I am hoping to work closely with you to share ideas on how we can help your child become successful in third grade. 

     I will be keeping in touch with you throughout the year, and I hope you will do the same with me.  If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to call me at school (803-663-4320), email me (, or stop by after school to speak with me.

     I am very excited about this upcoming school year and all of the wonderful learning experiences that will take place!
