Subject or Grade: 5th
I am excited to share a year of learning and growth with your child! The fifth grade curriculum is rich with history, literature and informational reading, math, and even elementary engineering! I am determined to teach the standards in a way that is inviting and interesting, but also makes them accessible to every student.
I believe open and frequent communication are essential to student success, so please do not hesitate to contact me!
I have been a teacher in Gilbert Public Schools for 18 years. Although I have taught all the intermediate elementary grades, I have been in fifth grade for nine consecutive years. I truly enjoy this age group! Having completed my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education, I later graduated with a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I also hold endorsements in Reading and SEI.
On a personal note, my husband is also a teacher. We have two beautiful daughters, and two big dogs that come in a close second!
