Welcome to 5th Grade English Language Arts and Reading (ELAR)! 


    I am excited to begin this school year with our 5th graders after a very long break!. This year promises to be stimulating and challenging while we explore multiple genres and delve deeper into reading comprehension and authentic writing. My goal is to see each student reach their potential as a preteen reader and to continue to develop strong writing skills. Strong reading skills are essential in all subjects and carry into life long reading. Our classroom will also focus on the valuable skills and tools needed to prepare them for their middle school adventures.

    You are welcome to contact me with questions or concerns by email or to schedule a conference call through MS Teams. I'm available for conferences (time TBD) on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday.
