About Me

Hi Fifth Graders!! 

I'm your fifth grade teacher this year.  I think fifth grade is the best year because you get to take five years of elementary education and roll it into being the role models of the building.  We get to have so much fun because you are older and more responsible.  We are also going to work hard this year in fifth grade so that you are ready for the big transition to middle school next year.

Things to look forward to this year: Genius Hour, Track and Field Day, band concerts, choir concerts, Google Classroom, Chromebooks, language arts, math, social studies and possibly the science fair.  I hope you have an incredible last year of elementary school.  

A little bit about me, I have been teaching for five years and this is my second year at Eagle View teaching fifth grade.  Upper elementary grades are my favorite to teach because the kids are so funny and we can have good conversations.  In addition to a K-6 elementary license, I do have a reading license and English as a second language license from Hamline University.  I still want to finish my Masters in Literacy Education.  We will talk about setting goals and how to reach them, including mine.  

I'm also married with two children who go to school at Falcon Elementary and New Prague Middle School.  I am right in the thick of parenting with your moms, dads and guardians.  Many of my decisions will be made with honoring your family life and how important that is.  (We'll talk more...)  Family is important to me, so I try to teach with the idea that YOU are someone else's whole world.
