Students and parents this is the official blog of our classroom known as, THE HALL OF HEROES. I am very excited for our first day, first week, and first month of classes. Fifth grade is a tough year in your education. The expectations are high as we are preparing you for life in middle school, high school and eventually college (if you choose that path). Regardless of where your life's journey takes you, this classroom is dedicated to preparing you for life where you are able to think critically, use reason, and make good decisions.
You will work hard and you will succeed. Your parents and I are here to help you on your quest for knowledge and to give you to the tools you need to succeed. I am working hard to make sure your education is relevant, interesting and fun. That's right, I said fun. My expectation is that you work hard and have fun doing it, at least most of the time.
I look forward to a fantastic year with you.
