Meet Our 5th Grade Team

Humanities

Tina Juarez

Humanities incorporates Language Arts and History. We analyze texts from many genres and do several novel studies throughout the year. In History we learn about the development of the United States up through the American Revolution. Instead of focusing on names and dates, I ensure students understand the big ideas of that development and the reasons for why things happened. 

Math

Sherron McMane

We use critical thinking to solve both skill-based and higher-level problems. We learn how math applies to the real world through project-based learning. We incorporate the C-STEM curriculum to program robots and to apply the math skills we learn in class. We focus on the fact that everyone can do math, and that math is fun!

Science

Megan Harns

We learn science by doing science!  Doing hands-on investigations and labs, engineering design challenges, and research projects helps us to build our science skills and habits of mind.  We collect, organize, and interpret data to build our analytical skills.  And we read, write, and present to build our communication skills.  Come do science with us at STEM!
