Hello . . . Welcome to Mr. Chalfant’s 3rd Grade Website. I am glad that you are here.
Here’s a bit of information about me. I began my teaching career almost 30 years ago in Los Angeles, and moved to Roseville 23 years ago with my young family. My wife Nancy is also a teacher, and we have 3 college-age girls. I enjoy reading, traveling, hiking/backpacking and am learning to be a beekeeper. (Bees are fascinating!)
My fondest memories as a student were in 3rd grade (I had my first “man” teacher), and it is my favorite grade to teach. I believe each child brings their strengths and interests into my classroom, and I enjoy helping them to learn how to become self-directed, HUNGRY learners.
