Welcome to 5th Grade!
Hello Fifth Grade Families,
I want to say I am very excited to be teaching 5th grade this year! I love coming to school and I come ready to serve each child with the best of my abilities. I wanted to also take this time to introduce myself and share a little about me and my family. My husband Eric is a Scottie Alum and we live in Rockford with our ever busy boys, 7-year-old Levi and 3-year-old Luke. We spend most of our free time with our family, at church or taking any chance we can get to go outside, especially in Montana. We love the outdoors; we typically go camping year round! I earned my teaching degree from Whitworth and this year marks the beginning of my 15th year of teaching and my 6th year here at Freeman Elementary.
Please if you have any questions about anything, please feel free to contact me either by email, send a note, phone, or stop by before or after school. During the year if there is something you need to communicate in a timely manner - contact the office first, secondly try email, it usually will be easiest to give you a quick response; it is difficult to call back and speak to you during the day with an audience of fifth graders. I am genuinely excited to partner with you to make fifth grade a special year.
