About the Teacher:  The 2013-2014 school year marks my 20th year of teaching and my 13th year at Lincoln.  I love math, science, using technology in the classroom, and I enjoy teaching writing.  Mr. Miller and I team teach, which means fifth grade students will receive reading and social studies instruction in his classroom.


About the Class:  At Lincoln School of Science & Technology, we treat each other with dignity and respect by following the 6 Ps.  My goal is to build positive relationships, while instructing district programs & using Common Core State Standards, to ensure my students are ready for the next grade level.  This year, we will continue the use of technology in the classroom.  Students will use 10" Asus Eee Tablets much of the day, will use ActivExpressions Learner Response Systems for assessments to recieve immediate feedback, and will receive interactive instruction while using the Promethean ActivBoard. This is an exciting time in education at Lincoln School of Science & Technology.
