We have three grown daughters that all attended Green. Two are married. I have two spoiled pets, a mini aussie dog named Charley and a black cat named Mav.Welcome to Fifth Grade Reading, Writing and American History! I will be teaching two sections of these three subjects this year. Our focus will be on integrating reading and writing. Students will engage in activities that build on their prior knowledge and skills in order to strengthen their reading, writing and oral language skills. In American History students will survey the history of the United States from 1565 to the present. I will be following the AISD reading, writing and social studies curriculum document to help each student achieve success.
