Welcome to our 5th grade classroom website! I hope that you find this site useful. 

Teaching your child is a tremendous responsibility and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning experience in this upcoming year. 

However I cannot do this without the help of you, the parents.  We are partners in the learning process.  
I believe that parent-teacher relationships are necessary for maximum school success.  Throughout the year I will communicate through my website, notes, telephone call, emails, report cards and parent teacher conferences.  I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions for concerns at any time.  You can call me at the school, send me a written note or contact me via email at

Establishing good classroom discipline is essential to each child’s success, confidence and well-being. Every child should feel that the classroom environment is safe and secure; free from all threats of physical or emotional harm. In addition, it is important that each child learn to develop self-discipline and good work habits, to resolve conflicts peacefully, and to think independently. I expect the students to: Be Respectful~~Be Responsible~~Be Safe!
