Dear Parents and Students,

            It is my pleasure to welcome you to fifth grade math! I am so excited to be your math teacher! This year promises to be full of learning and FUN! In this site, you will find cool math links that will help you improve your math skills, practice math topics or simply have fun with math. You will also be able to see an overview of what we will be learning in 5th grade math, homework assignments, as well as contact information.

            My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique, and each child learns in a different way. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help your child discover his or her individuality and work alongside them to maximize it. I believe in hands-on experiences, learning creatively, and learning through play. It is my goal to create a community of learners who are committed to working hard and having fun. I want students to leave my classroom feeling confident that they can apply what they’ve learned in school to real-life situations. I want my students to feel challenged and to have an enhanced passion for learning.


            Collaboration, cooperation, and open communication between home and school are keys to building a strong foundation for a successful school year. Please feel free to contact me at any time. I can be reached via email
