Happy Summer Everyone! I am sure you are all excited for a well deserved summer break. I cannot emphasis enough how proud I am of the growth our 5th grade class made this year. The effort you put forth during our final assessments (PARCC, MISA, etc.) was phenomenal. I hope that you continue the learning behaviors that you established this year. I believe they will take you far this year. I also hope you continue to set goals for yourself and always hold yourself to only the highest of expectations. I know you will be successful in middle school. In the future be loud and proud that you came from Emma K Doub School for Integrated Arts and Technology. "We challenge, connect, and create to achieve!"
Welcome 2nd grade magnet! I am ecstatic to be joining you on our epic adventure into the world of gifted and talented education. This year will be full of challenges and successes. Most importantly, it will be full of learning. Prior to teaching 5th grade last year, I taught 4th grade magnet for 2 years. It was an outstanding experience and I enjoyed every minute of it. I also have experience teaching early learners in 1st grade. This year we will make the transition into WCPS advanced programs with a focus on building a solid foundation for the years ahead. In addition to learning the second grade curriculum, we will connect lessons to real world complex experiences, create applicable professional products, and embrace the world being gifted. Please know that I am always open for questions, discussions, conferences, etc. Every student will be treated as though they are my own and treated with respect, equality, and care.
