I love teaching 5th graders and getting them excited about learning. Since finding Teachers Pay Teachers, my life has been easier so I hope that the files that I'm creating will be helpful to others.
Using humor and personal experience to get my students excited about their learning. My goal is to bring hands on activities to all curriculum areas to actively engage my students in their own learning.
I was our elementary Teacher of the Year candidate, a state finalist for the Presidential Award for Excellency in Math and Science Teaching, received a Golden Apple award from a local television station.
Bachelors of Science in Education, Masters degree in reading, certification for English Language Learners attended Teacher Space Camp, Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute, Summer Institute-Conscious Discipline
Fifth grade has been my favorite grade level as I love the curriculum I'm able to share with my students. When I have time (and money), I love to travel to historical places that I'm then allowed to share with my students.
