Welcome to my webpage!! Teaching is my passion. I have been a teacher for 31 years and love my job! My other passion in life is my two precious children!! I have a son who is 19 and is in the Navy. He is currently a Navy nuclear reactor operator with plans on becoming a Nuclear Engineering Lab Technician. My daughter is 17 and getting ready for her Senior year in high school. She plans on going to college but hasn't made up her mind just yet as to where she wants to go.

1st Nine Weeks--
These are the standards that we have discussed since the beginning of the school year.

5.NBT.B5--Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
5.NBT.B6-- Find whole-number quotients of whole number with up to four digit dividends and two digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
5.OA.A1-- Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
5.OA.A2--Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them.
