    Why am I a Teacher?

    I love my career.  I am thrilled that each day will bring something new and I am especially thrilled to teach 5th Grade Science and ELA this year!  I never know what to expect from the kids. They are full of joy, energy, and enthusiasm.  I absolutely love the funny things they say!  It is incredibly rewarding for me to see how they grow and develop academically, physically, socially, and emotionally throughout the school year.  I also love to experiment with Science and discover the world’s history with my students. I cannot wait to learn all about my 5th graders!  I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of this wonderful 5th-grade team.

     

    Classroom Goals:

    I want our children to be happy, feel safe, and have fun!  I also believe in educational equity.  Children are all unique with many different personalities and characteristics.  I want all children to learn in ways that are best suited for each individual.  I love to challenge children to reach high expectations and most of all I love to encourage all children to do their personal best.  I can’t wait to begin our journey together!  I know it will be a fun and rewarding year!  Fifth graders are amazing!
