Education Bio

I have taught in the AGWSR school system since I graduated from college.  I really enjoy the small town education setting and the well behaved kids.  Living in Ackley I have a chance to get to know most parents in settings other than the school.  I love that I know most of the kids and their parents before I even have them as students.  

 

Personal Bio

My family is a huge fan of UNI and sports.  Most of our free time revolves around attending UNI basketball games and getting our kids to their different sporting events.  When we are not doing that, I enjoy reading, Facebook, and playing games with the kids.

 

 

5th Grade Math- In math class we start with a focus on review of multiplication and long division.  The introduction of adding and subtracting fractions takes a good chunk of the winter months.  We end the year with geometry and probability activities.

 

 

5th Grade Social Studies- The focus of this class spans from the early Americans to the end of the American Revolution.  Projects help culminate each unit.

 


5th Grade Reading- A combination of the reading textbook and short novels give the students a wide variety of reading opportunities.
