Welcome to 5th grade!  This is my 18th year teaching at Addison.  I graduated from Michigan State University and have been teaching at Addison since then.  My husband and I have two children, Emma and Andrew, who attend Addison schools.  Emma is in 9th grade and Andrew is in 6th grade.  We love to travel, swim, and complete many DIY projects!
5th grade is a pretty exciting year because we switch classes throughout the day.  This year I will be teaching reading, writing, and science.  I am excited to explore some new books with my students this year while working in small group work stations.  We will practice various types of writing while conquering several grammar concepts through poetry.  In science, I look forward to conducting several investigations and experiments.  Some things to be excited about this year are the book raffle and our AR points rewards. Please look for my weekly emails that include reminders and lesson plans for the following week.
