Swiftly flow the days Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers Blossoming Even As We Gaze. Dear Parents, Welcome to one of the one of the most exciting years of your child’s school career. Fifth grade is such a joyous time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This will be a year filled with important transitions along with the introduction of new skills.

A little bit about me... ;) I have taught pre-school, kindergarten, first grade, third grade, fourth grade, and fifth grade. I also taught homebound students in grades five through ten. I am married and have one daughter, Shauna, who is also a teacher. I love reading books, writing stories, animals, learning new things and most of all… teaching! My favorite place to visit is Disney World, so if you plan to take a trip there, don’t forget to take me along! Homework: Homework is an important extension of what is being taught in the classroom and is an important part of your child’s fifth grade experience. Your child has a homework planner that should be coming home each day. Homework is listed on our classroom dry erase board and it is your child’s responsibility to record it in his or her planner. Weekly assignments will also be posted and updated on my web page. Please check planners and my homework page nightly. Please make sure work is handed in on time. Credit will be deducted for late assignments. Reading: Students will be immersed in narrative and expository selections throughout the year. A variety of texts will be choNo Headlines to display
