Welcome to 5th Grade! I am excited for all that is to come this year for you and your child. Fifth grade is a fun and important year for students to learn and prepare for the adventures of Middle School! My goal is to help students become organized, independent, humble, and kind lifelong-learners.
To give you some background, I was raised in Long Island, New York, received my B.A. in Elementary Education from the University of Arizona, and my M.A. in Special Education from California State University Northridge. This will be my 11th year working in the district. I started as an Instructional Assistant, then taught 4th grade for seven years at Beverly Vista. This year is extremely special as I join the students in moving on from 4th grade to 5th grade.
I am a firm believer of open communication. Therefore, if there is ever a concern or question, please feel free to email me at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org It is important to me that we work together to provide a warm and secure environment where maximal learning can take place. Your constant interest will play an important role in your child’s learning and success.
