School has been closed for the remainder of this academic school year, but learning must not stop! More information will be coming soon about how to continue your learning at home. In the meantime, please take time to explore the useful links page to the left. I have included many ways for students to work on their own to review content we have already learned this year.

Students, I am so very sad that we won't get to end our year together! You all are such amazing people and I am so proud of the growth you have shown. I am proud to have been your 5th grade teacher! ontinue to read, write and work while we are away from school. Summer break will be here soon.

Welcome to fifth grade!  I am very excited to meet each of you. This is going to be a great year for all of us. We are going to learn, laugh and most importantly become a fifth grade family

About me: 
I moved her from Newport News Virginia, where I began my teaching career.I can't believe it but this will be my 15th year teaching. I taught 2nd and 3rd grade in Newport News for 7 years.   I taught 3rd grade at West Gate for 5 years and this will be my 3rd year in 5th grade.
I love being a teacher! I have always wanted to be around kids and enjoy when students find what they are passionate about and use it to their full advantage. 

I graduated from Radford University in 2004 with a degree in Elementary Education. I moved to Northern Virginia in 2012. I got married that same year. I have two children. My son is starting Kindergarten this year and I have a 5 month old daughter. 
I am a huge sports fan. I love the Washington Capitals, Atlanta Braves, Minnesota Vikings and West Virginia Mountaineers.
