We will focus on several new units of study while reviewing what they learned in 4th grade. Students will be tested on what they have learned from both 4th and 5th grade. Constant review is necessary for students to retain and practice using the information for logical thinking on each unit.

"Grow Where You Are Planted"
I am so excited to be joining the AES Staff. I have worked in the building for the last 6 years as a regular substitute and volunteer. I knew I was ready to return to full time teaching and look forward to spending the year in 5th grade. I can't wait to watch students grow and learn this coming year.
