5th Grade - Welcome to 5th Grade

  •      Welcome Back! I am so excited to be starting my 13th year of teaching at Rockwell! This will be a year of leadership, learning, and fun!

         Fifth grade is such a great year of growth as students work toward being self-directed independent learners. As we take ownership and responsibility for our learning, it is important to continue to perfect our skills of working with each other as a learning community. Tolerance, acceptance and showing kindness makes friends and learning fun!

         Organization is an essential skill that all 5th graders will need before they take off on their middle school journey. We will be utilizing a daily planner to record homework as well as to communicate with parents and guardians. We will also be experimenting with having our homework on our new classroom website. Technology can be a fun and informative tool!

        I believe in working as a team collaboratively to make your student's year the best it can be. I look forward to working with you as we prepare your student to become a lifelong learner!  Again, welcome and I look forward to a wonderful year with you and your student!
