Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I am excited to have your child in my class this year. My goal as a teacher is to provide your child with an environment that gives them the knowledge, confidence, and support to grow as a learner! I hope to include lots of experiences that involve project based learning, blended learning, movement, as well as creativity. We will also be learning about the 7 Habits which are leadership qualities that will help prepare students for the future. In addition, the students will continue working on a growth mindset as they set individual goals throughout the year. Fifth grade is an exciting time where students gain independence, responsibility, and become proactive in their learning before transitioning to middle school next year. It is going to be a year full of new friends, adventures, and discoveries! I am looking forward to meeting you and seeing your child progress throughout the year!
