Welcome back Ladies and Gentlemen!
I hope everyone has had a great summer! My name is Angela Welsh and I will be teaching 5th grade reading this year. Reading allows us to have adventures and experiences that lead us in different directions. Some exciting....some interesting....Nevertheless, being curious and allowing ourselves to read more of what we like, will take us to places and thoughts that we never knew were possible.
I believe children should enjoy reading. If we don't enjoy something, it decreases our chances of doing it often and well. During this year, our students will enjoy reading. We will read materials that peak their interests. We will learn to dig out information and details that causes our minds to think a different way. We will enjoy reading.
I am here to motivate, inspire and facilitate learning for your child. He/she will be asked to do activities and tasks that are challenging, but I will be there to support them every step of the way. I want to make 5th grade a pleasant experience and I want to foster that higher level learning in a way that causes them to progress and succeed at the highest level possible.
If there's ever a question, concern or suggestion I am available by email or phone. I will work with you and your child to make this a valuable experience.
