IntroductionMy name is Donna Matheson-Fabien or simply Mrs. Fabien. I will be your son/daughter’s teacher this year. I am looking forward to a successful and enjoyable school year with my students. I have a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education as well as a Master's degree in Education.When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Some of my interests and hobbies are traveling, shopping , and reading.Overview/RemindersFifth grade is an important academic year as we are preparing our students for Middle School and beyond. Therefore, it is my expectation that students come prepared daily for class. Most students are already organized with books and supplies labeled. Students will need a 5 subject notebook or a separate notebook for each subject. A pocket folder for each subject will also be helpful to keep papers organized, a dry erase marker, sharpened pencils, crayons, glue, and scissors. Please ask your son/daughter if they are in need of any supplies. Your help providing them with the above needed material is very much appreciated.
I will contact parents personally via email or phone call in the event of a situation or concern. I am depending on each student to be responsible to write down good notes and record any H.W. or assignments in their notebooks and choice of agenda.
If you have any questions or concerns please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to fabulous year!Respectfully,Mrs. Fabien
