5th Grade

Mrs. McClanahan and Mrs. Rosinski

Welcome to 5th Grade!

We can't wait to celebrate a year of success with you! All classes will use this website to communicate with you and your parents to ensure we work as partners during this last year of elementary school!

Mrs. McClanahan has been teaching 5th grade for 13 years, all of which have been in Newport News. She has been at Richneck for the past 11 years and loves teaching 5th grade.

Mrs. McClanahan grew up in a very small town in Southern Tier of New York (not the city). She moved here 14 years ago to pursue her teaching career. In her time here she married her husband Mr. McClanahan in 2011 and has two children: Mason and Zoey, and a golden retriever named Riley.

In her free time, Mrs. McClanahan loves spending time with her family having movie nights, playing outside, camping or enjoying the quiet with a really good book!!!

Mrs. Rosinski has six years of teaching experience within North Carolina and Virginia, from 3rd grade all the way to seventh grade! Although this is her second year teaching fifth grade, she taught middle school for four previous years, so she's excited to help to prepare you for your middle school years!

Mrs. Rosinski is a native of North Carolina, but has been in the Hampton Roads area for four years. She is married Mr. Rosinski, and has a son named Ryan, as well as two dogs, Nutmeg and Toledo.

Mrs. Rosinski is an avid crossfitter, who loves traveling adventures, reading awesome books, baking stellar cupcakes, and spending time outdoors with her family.
