Welcome to Fifth Grade at MSJE! I am anticipating that Room 15 will be a magic number for us this year. I hope that you have all had time to rest, relax, and rejuvenate over the summer. This is an exciting time for me because it is my thirteenth official year as an educator. I am thrilled to be teaching at Mission San Jose Elementary, especially at the Fifth Grade level. I have experienced wonderful things about this school, including student achievement, parent involvement, and dedicated staff. As your child's teacher, I promise to provide a safe, orderly, and productive learning environment for all my students.
My goal for this year is to allow my students to realize their potential as young scholars and to ensure them the opportunity to take risks with learning in a safe, healthy setting. My objectives for your child this year are twofold:
· Achieving academic success with the 5th grade curriculum as outlined in the California State Standards
· Developing effective study skills and fostering positive, personal character traits that will help them succeed academically and socially
