• Welcome to an exciting year for 4th grade reading/language arts!  I am Lori Opiela and have been teaching here at UEMS for  11 years! Students will work on many skills this year and we will strive to accomplish growth goals! We will be reading literary texts as well as informational text to analyze different features of each. We will use Remind 101 to communicate and keep parents updated about school happenings!  I am looking forward to working with parents and students to have an amazing school year!
