Welcome to a new school year! We am so excited to be your fourth grade teachers this year. This is the start of Ms. Sweeney's twenty fourth year of teaching and Mr. Trad's eleventh year of teaching. Ms. Sweeney has been teaching at Peirce the past eleven years, and prior to that she spent twelve years teaching in a private school in Chicago. This is Mr. Trad's second year at Peirce, prior to that he spent almost ten years teaching at a Charter school in Chicago. Throughout Ms. Sweeney's career, she has taught Kindergarten and 4th grade and every grade in between. Mr. Trad has taught Diverse Learners from Kindergarten through 8th grade. This year will be full of a lot of learning and much fun!
