Memorial Elementary
5th Grade Classroom Teacher
Boston area
I teach 5th grade which means to me my mission is to build my students confidence and to get them excited about learning so they are ready for their big transition to middle school in 6th. I love to learn new things! Other teachers inspire me all the time and make me think, " I bet I could do that with my students too but maybe this way..." I use lots of technology to motivate student learning from Mystery Skype, Global a Read Aloud, Explain Everything to Book Creator and iMovie. I love to see my students take risks trying new things too and tell them " You got this! Keep Going!"
