It is a pleasure to start another school year, and I am looking forward to working with your child. This will be my fifth year teaching 5th grade at Lincoln School. I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Illinois at Chicago, and am currently completing classes for my Master's degree in Teaching and Learning through the University of St. Francis.
I believe that by providing an environment where children feel valued and respected, they will have the confidence they need to explore new challenges which will enable them to get the most out of their fifth grade experience. By having a common goal of wanting what's best for your child, I am confident that by working together we can ensure that your child will have a successful school year.
