I am looking forward to meeting each and everyone of our new fifth grade students, who I hope after a long and fun summer are also looking forward to an exciting year ahead.  I am a highly qualified Teacher of English who has been teaching for Ms. Rockafellow, another E/LA teacher out on maternity leave and who will be returing late October. Not only am I an English teacher who's been teaching in the district for many years, but I am also a tutor and a professional writer and editor. So, there will a lot of opportunities to learn, stretch academically, and grow this fall.


Fifth grade is a big step, as well as a bridge, between the wide-eyed innocence of 4th graders and the beginning middle schoolers' attitude of too cool for school! This is a year where great growth and development take place.  I intend to make the time I am with your children a full and fruitfilled learning experience for them.

Also, be sure to check this webpage and links for updates to weekly homework. Daily homework and notices will be posted in the classroom and should be recorded in students' agendas.
