Thanks for checking out our website. As I mentioned before, I want to tell you a little bit about myself. This is my sixth year teaching 5th grade at Lynnwood, and I think 5th grade is one of the best grades to teach!
I grew up locally and have lived in this area for my whole life. I went to Siena College for my undergraduate, and The College of Saint Rose for my graduate studies. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, even when I was very young, so when I got a job at Lynnwood, I felt like the luckiest person in the world! Before I came to Lynnwood, I taught 4th grade for 3 years.
I had a very busy summer and spent lots of time with my family. I have a son named Adam who is 3 years old, and a daughter named Lilah Rose who is almost 2 years old. We also have a puppy named Bear who keeps us all super busy. This summer, we spent time at the beach, went to the library, watched movies, went on bike rides, and of course read a LOT of books! I also finished my second google course and became a Level 2 Google Certified Educator. I can't wait to share with you some of the things I learned.
I am looking forward to an exciting and educational year. We will be studying many interesting topics, including the Systems of the Body, United States History, Countries of the Western Hemisphere, fractions, and Geometry. We will also be reading some awesome books, and will be going on some very exciting field trips.
5th grade is such a special year, and I can't wait to share it all with you!
