Welcome to my 5th Grade class home page for the 2019-20 school year!


We are learning about a lot of new and interesting topics this year!  Mrs. Douglas will be teaching math. Mrs. Wakeley and Miss Darnell will be co-teaching this year.  Mrs. Wakeley and Miss Darnell will be teaching ELA and science. In addition to academic skills we will be working together to develop social skills such as being responsible, taking responsibility for our actions and how to make amends when we do break the rules.  Our school uses the responsive classroom approach along with life skills to guide not only our academic but social curriculum.


Our students will play an active role in our rule-making process in our classrooms all the way down to coming up with the name.   These rules will be created to help students better be able to meet the hope and goal(s) they will set for themselves in 5th grade!  

We have also been working hard to learn more about how our brain works and how WE can have control over our own growth mindset!


In order to treat each child fairly, they must be treated differently.
