My name is Miss.Winter and I am so excited to be your childs 5th grade teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. We have a lot to learn and I cannot wait to share the love of learning with each and every one of your children. I am determined to make this the best year ever!
This will be my second year teaching at Compass. Many of you that are in this class I already know. I graduated from Plymouth State University in 2018 with my Undergrad in Elementary Education (K-8) and Mathematics (5-8). Currently, I am working though my Masters in Special Education at Plymouth and will continue to work on that throughout the school year. I will be graduating in May!
When I am not in school, I love anythig that has to do with the outdoors! I love going on hikes, swimming, and exploring new places. We will be spending a lot of time outdoors whenever the weather cooperates.
I believe that every child can learn, just not in the same way or at the same time. As a class, this year will be a learning experience for all. We will be participating in small group work, stations, and tons of hands on activiites to keep the classroom learning experience new and fresh everyday.
5th grade is hard. So please make sure you and your student are up for the challenge. Do not hesitate to contact me at any time. I am always open to having conferences, phone calls, or exchanging emails back and forth. Whatever is going to help both your child and yourself be successful, I am open to.
The school work will be harder this year. If you find yourself struggling and cannot help your student, IT IS OKAY! Just send me an email and I will work through it with you. I just want everyone to be successful with the least amount of stress. So do not worry! We are in this together :)
