Hello and welcome to 5th grade! This is my 7th year teaching 5th grade. I graduated from Midwestern State University with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2009 and a Master of Education in Special Education in 2014. I am looking forward to helping your child develop or grow their love of math, science, and social studies this year!

Rules and Expectations
1. Be on time with all needed materials.
2. Turn in assignments and homework when they are due.
**students who fail to turn in homework on time 3 times in a 9 weeks will receive a conduct cut, as it is a persistent responsibility issue. This will be noted in the agenda or via phone call.
3. Be respectful to yourself, your classmates, your teacher, and the room.
4. Ask questions and participate.
5. Try your best and be on task.

Third/Fourth/Fifth Grade Reteach/Retest Procedures Students will be retaught concepts they do not master. Reteaching may take place in whole group, small group, or during individual instruction.

  1. Students will be allowed one opportunity to retest on major grades only.  Rubrics, projects and final nine weeks/semester assessments will be exempt from reteach/retest procedures.

  2. Reteach/retest will need to be done within ten days of the original test being given.
  3. Retest can be an alternative assessment on the same content or the same activity.
  4. Students who earn a grade below a 70% will be required to participate in a reteach session and then retest for that assignment.  
  5. Students will receive an average of the two grades.  If a student receives a lower grade on the retest, then the original grade will stand in the gradebook
