Shout out to FIFTH Grade!! Whoo-hoo, another year, and I am so excited about meeting our new students and families.
Who am I and why would I shout out to the 5th grade? After graduating from California State University, Fresno, I began teaching fifth grade in 1998 at Roosevelt Elementary in Hanford, California. My journey then took me to Madera, California, where I continued to teach fifth grade. Along the way, I received a Master's degree in Administration and joined the administration team for a few years.
In 2011, I arrived in Jacksonville, NC to meet my newest grandson and decided to stay!
In 2013, I began teaching at Northwoods Elementary. Yes, as a fifth-grade teacher and have enjoyed every year, month, day, and moment that teaching has to offer. When COVID hit and everyone enrolled in the virtual school, I was blessed to be able to continue with OVES as a fifth-grade teacher!!
