WELCOME BACK! I am so excited to be your fifth grade teacher and to be joining the McGrath family! Prior to teaching in Brentwood, I taught second and fourth grade in the City of St. Charles School District. I also taught fourth grade in Columbia Public School District while completing my masters program.
Here are a few fun facts about me:
I had so much fun meeting each of you at “Fly Up” day last spring and am looking forward to making this the best fifth grade year! I think of each of my classes as a family, so I can’t wait to build our community! We will spend our year expanding our mathematical understanding and traveling to new places through texts. We will explore history and study scientific concepts. We will be innovators, taking risks and always challenging and encouraging ourselves and each other to grow and improve. I can’t wait to get started!
I hope you spent your summer reading, relaxing, and having fun with family and friends! I can’t wait to hear about all of your adventures on our first day, August 15th!
