5th Grade ELA/Social Studies

 Our focus in ELA for the second 9 weeks will be:

* point of view/perspective/how the author influences our pov

* theme (what is the life lesson/moral of the story)

*determining main idea of a text with supporting details

*describe the relationship b/w characters and events

*quoting text evidence to support from the text


**We will use one of my favorite children's novels, Tuck Everlasting, to learn our objectives mentioned above! This book is a student favorite...and one of mine, too!!


Reading standards repeat continually throughout the year; our depth will increase as well. If you have any questions please message me on school status. We can set up a time to have a conference or talk over the phone.

I love teaching! This is my 14th year as a 5th grade teacher at DCES. I began as an assistant when my daughter was in first grade.  I truly love this school! Both of my children grew up in DeSoto Central schools. My son graduated in 2014 and my daughter followed in 2016.
Way too many years ago, I received a BS degree from the University of Memphis
(formerly known as Memphis State). For several years, I worked as a kitchen designer and then was blessed to be able to stay home with my young children.  Once they started school, I became active in the PTO and that led to a position as a first grade assistant and later a kindergarten assistant. At this point, I began feeling a call in my heart to become a classroom teacher. I completed the state approved 'alternate route' program for teachers. Going back to school was frightening at the time, but I earned my teaching certificate! I have truly enjoyed teaching 5th grade; I cannot imagine being anywhere else. 
I will do my best to make learning fun for your child. If you have any concerns,
please contact me!! School Status is by far the best way.
