Fifth Grade Class
My philosophy of education is simple. I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature. It is my desire to help students meet their fullest potential by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. My goal is to meet each child where they are and to help, inspire, and encourage them to reach their potential.
As a parent, I like to be informed and I don't feel that I am alone. For this reason, I have joined an online service called Engrade. It is a website where I can post student grades, and parents can login to keep themselves informed. I have also included a link to a 5th Grade Standards Booklet that I created; this covers everything we should learn this year.
