Welcome to Mrs. Strickland's 5th Grade ELA classroom website! I am so excited about this year in the fifth grade! This will be my fourteenth year teaching in Columbia County, and I am so proud to continue working with the fifth grade team and students! I have a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Augusta University and a Master's degree in Instruction and Curriculum also from Augusta University. I am currently working on my Ed.S degree in Advanced Educational Studies and will finish in December! I am Reading and Gifted endorsed, a teacher consultant with The National Writing Project, and am currently part of the Governor's Teacher Leader Academy in Georgia.

My husband Scott and I have two children, Luke (9) and Ruby (7). They keep us entertained and busy, and we couldn't be more proud of them! This past May, we got a new golden retriever, Midas! He has brought us so much joy! Teaching is a passion of mine, and I love seeing my students progress from the beginning of the year to the end!

We will be reviewing all ELA standards covered in fourth grade and building upon that knowledge throughout the year. We will work hard, but we'll certainly have fun while we do so! Thank you for sharing your students with me!
