6th Grade Class Page

Welcome to Mrs. Wood's 6th grade class!

I am originally from Chicago, Illinois. My husband's job in the Marine Corps brought us to Okinawa Japan, and we couldn't be happier on this beautiful island! My family and I fell in love with the Yomitan area, and my children are also excited to be starting their school year here at OCSI as well.

I graduated from Illinois State University with a bachelors in Education, and then attended George Mason University where I received my masters in Education. Being in the military, we have moved many times, but I am lucky enough to continue my passion as a teacher. I have taught mostly high school and middle school math classes in the states. This will be my 12th year teaching. However, I know it will be the most spectacular in that I get to combine my love of Jesus and teaching.

My classroom website will be available on OCSI’s main page to view upcoming assignments and tests. Students will have access to my google classroom where they will find the notes or power points for that day. If a student misses a day of school, or needs a refresher of the lesson for homework help, they can find it there. I will also post the homework assignments in Jupiter as well.
