Welcome to Fifth Grade!

I have been a fifth grade teacher at both Juniper Park School and Munger Hill School and am now very excited to be teaching at Westfield Intermediate School. I am the Science and Math teacher for Team 5.5 and team teach with Lauren Alben, the Reading and Social Studies teacher. My role here is to get to know each of my students, determine which learning style works best for each child, and then, provide a wonderful fifth grade year. We have asked our students to work very hard, but in return  will make this year as fun, interesting, and exciting as possible. 

I consider myself to be in a partnership with the parents of my students with a united goal of making this year as beneficial as possible for every child. I have found, and statistics have shown, that children with parents who are actively engaged in their child’s education, score better on tests and are more successful in school. We will do our best to keep the parents informed on all that we do. In return, we ask parents to ask their children purposeful questions about their learning each night using questions that begin with, “Please explain…”, “Tell me more about…”, or “What’s your opinion on…”.

I will warn you now, this year will fly by. Stay involved so your children will know that we are working together to help them have a great year. 
My help class is Wednesday afternoon from 2:30-3:30 and I can be available before school at a prearranged date and time.
I look forward to a great year!
