Welcome to 5th grade! I am so excited to begin a new school year. This year I begin my 23rd year at Tara Oaks. I love being a resident of Collierville, and I'm truly blessed to be part of the amazing faculty at our school. 
This year I am teaching Math and Science to all students on the All Star Team. I'm excited to delve into the Eureka math program. My goal is to develop critical math thinkers who can apply their knowledge to real world experiences.  Our new Science curriculum will offer many inquiry based hands-on activities!  I'm looking forward to working with your children and helping them to "treasure" math and science.
Please use this webpage to follow all the exciting events of 5th grade. I'll also post weekly overviews for the Math and Science curriculums.
