For the 2016 - 2017 school year,you will have two teachers! Mrs. Welch will be teaching reading/language skills and I will be teaching math. We both will teach our homerooms in science. Make sure you come to Open House so that I can explain how it all works! I promise you will be fine and will enjoy having two teachers instead of just one! We will be switching classes throughout the day to better meet the individual needs of each student. This is an exciting approach to teaching 5th grade and I am committed to giving you the best year ever! We have done this in the past, and feel that it is better for the students, and that they like the changing of classes as well. It's just one more step in getting you ready for middle school!
