    Subjects I Teach: 5th Grade ELA
     Our School Year
    Greetings 5th Grade Parents and Students
    It is my pleasure to be working with the Smith-Barnes ES this year. I look forward to an inviting and engaging year of learning. This year, students will be engaging in collaborative discussions, developing their critical thinking skills, and producing quality work samples that demonstrate what they are learning throughout this school year.  
    I am a native of Atlanta, GA. I have a Master's Degree from Argosy University in Curriculum and Instruction for grades K-12. I have taught in the public school setting for over 8 years at the elementary level. I taught in the private school setting for 3 years at the elementary level as well. I have 3 wonderful children, 2 high school boys and one daughter in college.
    Standards: Students will be exposed to learning concepts such as understanding the writing process, analyzing higher level text and vocabulary, exploring history, developing an understanding of government and economics and improving their understanding of the world in which we live. Our scholars will be challenged to go beyond state standards in understanding who they are as learners, as well as, taking the state standards and developing their own ideas and shaping their individual worldview.
