• Ms. Hormel and I are honored to be the 5th & 6th grade Renaissance classroom teachers.  We are excited to provide our students with an environment that will effectively meet both their academic and social/emotional needs.  

    In our  classrooms, we believe that every child should have individual learning opportunities where they're encouraged to think critically, share creatively, solve problems, connect to the real-world, and experience personal growth. We want our students to become empowered, organized, self-directed, life-long learners that will go on to make an impact on their community and in the world. 

    Furthermore, we believe wholeheartedly in the partnership between parent, student, and teacher.  Together, we can ensure that your child is happy, engaged, and has a positive school experience. 

    The teachers that will be working together to provide your child with rich learning opportunities are: 

    • Marianne Velonis:  ELA/Social Studies
    • Dawn Hormel:  Math/Science
    • Jeneil Killman:  Gifted Instructional Specialist
    • Krista Gibson:  STEAM Specialist/Instructional Coach
