I would like to welcome you to fifth grade. I am pleased to be your child's teacher this year. I am new to the district and have been in Arizona for about three years. I moved here from Northern Michigan, after having taught there for ten years. A little about me:
I have two grown children back in Michigan. When I go back there I visit my family on a small, remote island in Lake Michigan, and in Detroit. I live with my cat Greensleeves. I love projects combining Art and Science. I am a painter and also make art from found objects. I enjoy using American Sign Language and making origami.
Keeping the lines of communication open between home and school are very important for your child's success. Please contact me anytime through the school year. The best way to reach me is on my school email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I will check my school email first thing in the morning, during lunch and after school. Please give me a day to get back to me. If it is more urgent, leave a message at the Front Desk (480)677-7500 Ex. 2800, for me to call you as soon as possible.
I look forward to getting to know your child, and with their help making this a great school year.
