Welcome to 5th Grade! I'm Kristine Kennedy, and I'm excited to have joined the Meeker staff this year. Overall, this will be my sixth year in education with most of my experience in Grand Junction Mesa District 51. This year will be full of learning, leadership opportunities, and lasting memories.
As a school, we are implementing the Leader in Me from Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. These habits will help your child become a great leader that will help them throughout their education and careers. Our class will continue to use the Blended Learning style which allows all students to have personalized instruction on computers for reading and math. The 5th Grade curriculum will challenge all students and will practice skills such as determination, perseverance, and grit. having a growth mindset will be encouraged, modeled, and expected for the upcoming challenges your student will face.
When I am not teaching, I am taking care of my tow children (ages: two and five), and enjoying time with my family!
