ELA, 5th Grade


When did you become a DEN member?



What’s your favorite thing about being a DEN member?

I like to be invited to free seminars and such for information on new initiatives.


What’s your teaching super power?

Research integrating informational text, fiction, and technology!!


If you could be any fictional character, who would you be? Why?

I would be Samwise from Lord of the Rings because he is compassionate, nature-loving, gentle, kind, STRONG, brave, and trustworthy. Samwise helps others find strength and courage within when they feel lost. Instead of doing it for them, he pushes them to persevere and grow. He is kind and gentle, but not afraid to speak up for what is true and right.
