Erin Tumbarello

Mrs. Tumbarello -4th Grade

Welcome! My name is Erin Tumbarello and this will be my 8th year teaching a Broadmoor Elementary. I am so excited to have moved up to fourth grade and can't wait for the year of adventures and learning ahead. I grew up in Southampton, NY going to the beach and nurturing my love of reading. I attend SUNY New Paltz where I earned my bachelors degree in Art History and Elementary Education. I then went to graduate school at Dowling College for my masters in Reading. My husband, Noah, and I moved to Colorado Springs 8 years ago while he was stationed at Fort Carson. Since then, he has departed from the Army and we live on 2.5 acres in Falcon, CO. We also are the parents to Owen (5) and Maggie (2).  In my free time I enjoy swimming, reading, shopping, cooking and playing with my children.

Please feel free to contact me at anytime with concerns or questions. Email is the best method, but you could also speak with me before/after school or leave me a phone message.


Homework & Planners

Homework will be given every night except for the weekends.  Students should have about 20 minutes of homework and an additional 20 minutes of reading and studying math facts every night. On Monday, students will bring home their planners with spelling words inside. You will also have a reading log to fill in each night. This is due on Friday. Finally, a small amount of math homework will be sent home daily and should be returned the next day. 

Grading Scale for Assignments:

A  =  90%-100%
B  =  80%-89%
C  =  70%-79%
D  =  60%-69%
F  =    0%-59%

Daily planners are expected to be filled out every day by students with the homework assignments of the day. Thank you!

Report Cards

A report card is not a judgment of your child's worth as an individual. It does not measure the delight he or she gives, the humor in those young eyes, or the hope for tomorrow. It measures only one aspect of a young life with so much untried potential. After only a few years of life we cannot judge their lives to be successes nor failures at anything. Please look at your child's report card with love and acceptance of how things are right now. Give it only the importance of the moment - notice and point out the good and positive, emphasize what your child is doing right and build on that to improve what needs improving. Young developing egos are fragile - handle with care and nourish all that your child is and can be.
