• All About Mrs. Addington

       Welcome back to school and welcome to fifth grade! You are about to embark on a journey full of adventure and excitement! I am very excited about this year and I am especially excited about what new things we will learn and what new experiences we will encounter! I have high expectations for all of my students and I expect everyone to set their goals high and achieve as much as they possibly can. The higher you set your goals, the higher you can soar!   

       My name is Julie Howe, soon to be Julie Addington in October! I am a local to Clemmons, NC, where I have lived most of my life. I received my BA in Education at Elon University (Go Phoenix!) where I discovered what a rewarding experience I would obtain from working with elementary school students.

       The focus in my classroom is centered on the Common Core and the Essential Standards while incorporating a plethora of technology. I want to help my students grow and to become independent problem solvers.  I want them to be comfortable with technology and to gain skills they will need to be successful in today’s society  It is important for students to be familiar with the world around them; therefore, I have a traveling theme in my class as well.  I also can’t wait to see what they will teach me as well!

       I love to travel and I love to experience new cultures. I enjoy road riding, mountain biking, camping, and hiking. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  Most importantly, I love teaching and I find every minute of it rewarding.

    I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and learning all about you and what makes you special!
