I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child throughout the coming school year, which surely promises to bring with it many new experiences and opportunities. It is my goal to help all of my students become confident learners. This will be achieved through the use of curriculum differentiation, hands-on learning, and the use of technology. Your student will be able to demonstrate his or her knowledge via choice based projects, collaborative grouping, and many 21st Century tools such as Voicethread, Promethean Boards, blogs, etc. I am certain that together we can provide the support and encouragement needed to help your child excel as a 5th grader.
