Welcome to 5th grade!
Get ready to have your best year, yet!
All About Me:
I have a precious little family. My husband, Swayze and I, celebrated our 5 year anniversary this summer. We have a wild but sweet little boy, McCoy. He is 3 1/2 years old, and would think it's very important I mention the 1/2. ;-) I am sure the kiddos will come home with stories I've shared about the antics of my sweet boy. I love being able to connect with the kids through funny stories; it's important to me to encourage familial connections within the class. I think this goes a long way with encouraging kids to be a community in the classroom.
This is my 8th year of teaching Math, and 6th year teaching 5th grade. I LOVE my 5th graders! I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Mississippi College and plan to begin working on National Boards this year. I am the math lead for the 5th grade team at MAUE and enjoy exploring all avenues of understanding and practicing mathematics.
I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach and especially love reading during any down time I may acquire.
I am looking forward to an exciting school year!
If you have any questions or comments for me, my email is the best place to reach me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Your children are my children now, and I promise to treat them as I would my own.
