Hello Families- I am so excited to be at Meeker this year! This is my first year in 5th grade and my 18th year in education. A little about me: I have my undergrad from Dickinson State University in education. I also have my master's degree in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis in mathematics from Black Hills State University as well as a masters in administration from Northern State University. I have 2 kids of my own, Maddox is a 3rd grader this year and Declan is in 1st grade. They are always on the go which keeps my husband and I very busy!

 

5ht grade happenings:

In 5th grade we send home reading homework on Friday with it being due on Thursday of the following week. These are always a review of lessons from the week. Have your student read at least 20 minutes per day.

 

We follow Meeker Leadership Rules in 5th grade. It teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. Every day we will be practicing a different habit to become our best selves. Here is the website for more information: HTTPS://WWW.THELEADERINME.ORG/

 

In my classroom we use Star Buck. These can be earned for showing leadership. I use Remind to keep in touch with families. Anyone may join our group. I sent each parent an invite, so please take the time to accept the invitation.  I am so excited for the school year!  It is going to be great!

 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me:
