A Little About Me...
Welcome to 5th Grade! The first 2 weeks of school have flown by! I’m excited about the opportunity to get to know you and your student, and I’m looking forward to a happy and productive school year.
I want to take a moment to give you a little more information about myself. I am originally from Lewisville, where my parents still live. I am an only child, but grew up with pets as siblings. My husband, Ryan, and I are coming up on our 1 year anniversary. We have a furry, Husky child named Dezzy who keeps us busy. After graduating from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2012, I began substituting within the district. During this time, I also became certified in special education in order to better fit the needs of all students in my classroom. This is my third year of teaching but my second year at Rose Haggar Elementary. I am so excited and proud to call Haggar my home. When I’m not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time outside. I love to hike and go on adventures with my dog. I am an avid movie watcher, old and new.
I will be your child’s reading and social studies teacher. I am very excited to be able to integrate the two subjects throughout our class period! I will also get to see your student every other week during Intervention/Extension time. This week during IE time we are working on main idea/details, nonfiction text features, and we are reading an article about 3D printing!
I am a firm believer in a strong, open line of communication between home and school, so PLEASE contact me with any questions or concerns you have throughout the year. If you would like to schedule a conference, or volunteer to help out, you can contact me via email or by phone. My contact information is listed below.
Let’s work together to make this the best year ever!
We have been working in teams in class. Last week we got to complete our first Mind Mission!
MAKE YOUR MARK!
Our theme this year is "Make Your Mark."
Students "tracked" their inner conversation as they read. So many questions, comments, and connections about the same text!

Each Friday the students must turn in their spelling pages for that week. The spelling packet is bright yellow and includes all of Unit 1 spelling lists and pages. Students are only expected to complete the 3 pages that link with that week's list. We are currently on the list that is labeled U1 W3- long vowels; therefore, pages 8, 9, and 10 are due this Friday.
