Welcome students and parents to room #205. This website is designed to keep you update with lessons, pictures, vidoes, events and the learnings of our 5th grade students. As your teacher this year this is what you can expect from me. I will provide my students with a safe environment to explore and question. I will be creative in planning and executing my lessons by using multiple learning styles, rigor, and whole-brain teaching. I will instill self-confidence and encourage my students' search for knowledge is met as they learn to find answers to their questions. For students to construct knowledge, they need the opportunity to discover for themselves and practice skills in authentic situations. I will provide my students access to hands-on activities, and allowing adequate time and space to use materials. I will reinforce the lesson being studied by creating an opportunity for individual discovery and construction of knowledge to occur.
