Welcome to our Class Connection!

We have a growth mindset!

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  I am looking forward to a very fun, challenging, smooth, and successful experience.  I have put a great deal of effort into developing interesting units that, I assure you, will be both rigorous and fun!  I am always committed to enriching my lessons with exposure to high-interest literature, primary sources, art, technology, and real-world connections.  I have very high expectations for all my students' work and behavior, and I do expect that you have high expectations of me.


We will be using digital communication this year.  Please ensure that you get connected with your gradebook, your Seesaw Portfolio, Google Classroom, Connect 5 Blog, and our class Curriculum Resources.  Have no fear if you are new to digital learning.  During the first three weeks of school, we will be learning how to master using each.
