Welcome to my 5th grade classroom website!
I consider it a privilege to work with your student for this new school year. I would like to make a promise to you that I will dedicate myself to your student and will work towards instilling a true love for learning in your child. I plan to provide a safe and nurturing environment for my students so they will feel free to become all that they can be.
This year, the 5th grade team is continuing to use a more departmentalized approach. The students will have an assigned homeroom class, and will be rotating to the other classrooms to focus on one subject with each teacher. This will allow the students to prepare for middle school, as well as give the teachers a chance to delve deeper into a subject that they are passionate about. I will be focusing on reading in my classroom, while the other 5th grade teachers will focus on math, social studies, science and writing.
I use a lot of technology in my classroom and find it to be very successful in engaging my students. Please check my Google classroom for frequent updates and assignments.
This is my 7th year teaching and my 3rd year at Settler's Point. I am currently the 5th grade Reading teacher. I am originally from California
and go back to visit often. I enjoy reading, yoga, bike riding, hiking, traveling, and spending time with my pets and family.
