5th Grade Classroom

If you study to remember, you will forget, but, If you study to understand, you will remember.

Welcome to my classroom where students make sense of subjects as they learn and apply concepts in the context of their use. In my class students think that everyone can learn and that effort and understanding will lead to success. I will continue to work at making my classroom a warm environment which provides challenge, discussion, and motivation for my students.
