College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:

I attended UNC Charlotte and received my BA in Elementary Education with a minor in Children's Literature and Childhood Studies

 

 

Educational Philosophy/Vision:

I believe that with a strong support system every child can and will succeed in everything they choose to do. Every child is capable of learning any topic and becoming successful at it. I believe every child is accountable for his or her own actions, and should take personal leadership and responsibility over their own learning.

 

 

What We are Studying:
Social Studies: For the rest of the year your child will be learning all about the  Revolutionary War, the workings of the US Government, Westward Expansion, and the Civil War.

Math: We will be working on mixed operations with fractions and decimals, geometry, and measurement. 

ELA: We will explore new and exciting literature and informational texts both as a whole class and in our literature circles. We will be learning skills to identify text features and main ideas within a text. 

Science: We will be learning about the inner workings of weather, forces and motion, and ecosystems!

 

Things parents/guardians can do to help:

Please make sure to check agendas and orange folders for nightly homework assignments, and also make sure that your child is reading for at least 30 minutes every night. I will also send out classroom reminders and other updates through Classroom Dojo. If you would like to receive these updates, please download the app to your smartphone or tablet and email Mrs.Peele for your individual parent code! You may also receive updates to your email!
