Welcome to Fifth Grade at Sonoran Foothills! I will be your ELA teacher. Each day, you will have a 75 minute ELA block where we will not only read and write, but analyze, discuss, share, create, and challenge our minds with literature studies, writing projects, and critical thinking exercises that will be both perplexing and fun!
I am very excited to start a new year at Sonoran Foothills. I have previously taught in Deer Valley School District at both Legend Springs and Arrowhead. Intermediate grades are my favorite and that is where I have done most of my 13 years of teaching. Fifth grade will be a very significant year as the students make the transition from elementary to middle school and I look forward to working together to follow the bobcats TRACKS to success!
Both of my daughters are students at Sonoran Foothills. Zoey will be in 8th grade and Ryan will be in 6th grade this year. I am sure you will meet my husband at some time during the school year. He is a professional magician and my students always enjoy an impromptu magic trick or even a lesson!
I am looking forward to a successful 2018-2019 fifth grade year at Sonoran Foothills!
