Ms. McDermott's Fifth Grade
- Welcome to fifth grade! My name is Becky McDermott, and I have been teaching since 1996. I am originally from Traer, Iowa, am a graduate of Coe College, and earned my Masters Degree from Graceland University. I love working with kids as a fifth grade teacher, love spending time with my family and friend, love watching the Cubs and the Hawkeyes, and I love my two Bernese Mountain dogs, Jack and Maggie.
- I have been teaching fifth grade at Alburnett since 1998. I've been in fifth grade for a long time because it is such an awesome place to be! I love the great sense of community within the Alburnett Community School District. I've so enjoyed working with and getting to know students and families with our community. Alburnett is a also a great place to teach because of the wonderful staff. Some of my very best friends are colleagues I teach with.
- In fifth grade, I teach reading and language arts to students in my homeroom, and I teach science to all students in fifth grade. If at any time you have questions or concerns about anything in fifth grade, feel free to contact me.
