Welcome to 5th Grade! This year you will be challenged as you master concepts such as operations with fractions and decimals, writing a five paragraph essay, and completing projects following the Engineering Design Process. Our class is set up thematically and we will read, write, and learn about Science and Social Studies concepts. In 5th grade we study American history from the founding of our country to the Civil War.
I am so pleased to get to be your teacher this year, 5th grade is my favorite grade to teach. I have previously taught 4th grade, 6th grade, ELL, and I worked at Arizona State University. I have a Masters of Gifted Education from Arizona State University, a Masters of Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University, a B.S. Business Process Management (statistics concentration) and B.S. Marketing from the W.P. Carey School of Business at ASU.
My favorite subjects to teach are math and Social Studies. As an elementary student my favorite subject was always math. I love to read, cook, snowboard, crochet, and travel.
