I am so excited to have the privilege of teaching your 5th grader Science this year! Science is a subject I've always been passionate about! I am in my 14th year of teaching, and my 8th year at Elkhart Intermediate.
Elkhart has always been home to me. I attended Elkhart ISD for my entire grade school career, and was a member of the Class of 2000 here at Elkhart High School!
I hope that your child comes home excited about science! We have a lot going on, and lots of fun/gross/cool stuff to learn! We will be gardening again this year with produce being donated to the Stock Pot soup kitchen in Palestine. The kiddos love getting their hands dirty! We have many guests in our classroom throughout the year including our master gardener, a nutritionist, a water specialist, and many others.
Please ask them about the things we are doing in Science class!
