• Welcome to 4th Grade!
  • Dear Parents and Guardians,


              My name is Mrs. Colleen Rutherford and I will be your child’s fourth grade teacher this year. I think your child will find the fourth grade both challenging and fun. I graduated from SUNY Morrisville with an Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts. After that, I pursued my Bachelor’s Degree in Education at Utica College of Syracuse University. Finally, I received my Master’s Degree in Education from SUNY Oneonta. I am a certified Reading Teacher (PreK-12), Elementary Teacher (PreK-6), and Social Studies Teacher (7-12). My passion is teaching and I am forever grateful to the parents that share their children with me for a year.


              Throughout the year, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. My home telephone number is 899-8957 and my e-mail address is crutherford@brookfieldcsd.org. You may also send a note to me by putting it in your child’s take home/bring back folder.


        We will have a snack time. If you would like your child to have a snack, you may send one in on a daily basis. Also, please make sure that your child has sneakers everyday for Physical Education class.


              Please fill out the attached form and return it to me as soon as possible. I look forward to working with both you and your child this year.  





                                                                       Mrs. Colleen Rutherford
