Hello 5th Grade Families and Students!
I am excited to get the year started! I will be starting the year with one of my favorite books: Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I have chosen this book because of the meaning behind it. My students and I will be going on a journey together to become one big family - with the help of books, of course. Throughout this Read Aloud, my students will learn about the Wonder that is inside of each of them, and I CANNOT wait to find out what that will be! Each year is a fresh beginning to be the BEST you that you can be.
So, what will the Wonder inside of you do?
A little bit about ME:
I was born and raised here in Clearwater, Florida. This will be my first year at Plato Academy, and I am so excited to join the family! I went to college at the University of Miami to get my Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary and Special Education. I have had a passion for education since before I can remember, and always knew I would become a teacher. I have one beautiful Shetland Sheepdog at home named Derby. For fun, I love relaxing by the beach, trying new foods, and spending time with my family. I'm looking forward to learning about all of you soon!
