Hello! I am Mrs. Jessica Gabbard and I teach 5th grade Math. I have been teaching in Elkhart since 2009. I am married and have two children who attend Elkhart Intermediate.
As a 5th grader, your child will be learning many new skills this year and they will be expanding on previous knowledge from previous years. One of my main goals is to prepare your child for the 6th grade science STAAR test. I hope to accomplish this through exploring, observing, and engaging scientific experiments.
We will also be using various textbooks: Motivation Math, Envision, and Forde Ferrier. Each of these books is structured in a way that will expose your child to STAAR formatted questions and help your child be successful on the STAAR test.
I look forward to teaching your child. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions.
