Welcome back everyone!!! I am ecstatic to be joining the 5th grade team this year. There is certainly something special about teaching 5th grade as we prepare for middle school. It is hard to believe that only a few years ago, I taught some of these very same students in 1st grade. After a hard summer of planning and preparing, I am positive 5th grade will be an epic adventure. We will challenge each other and reach new heights. Together we will fall deep into books and bring them to life as we strengthen comprehension. We will practice and strengthen our mathematical skills with real world problems and engage in engineering design. In science will discover fall away places, investigate our solar system, and learn about systems of the earth. Long term and short term goal setting will become everyday practice. It is without a doubt going to spectacular and I thrilled to see the growth you all will make this year. Let's have a wonderful year in 5th grade, together!
