Welcome to my 5th grade ELA class. This is my eighteenth year of teaching and my eighteenth year at Ethel Schoeffner Elementary School. I am looking forward to working with your child this year. 

This year, I will incorporate Google Classroom with our district provided Chromebooks. Google Classroom is a tool that allows me to post assignments, announcements, and reminders for students. It also allows for class assignments and submissions to be posted and collected digitally. 

To access Google Classroom please use the following link and have your child log into their Google account. Once logged in, you can review class announcements, assignments and course information. You can also view Google Docs from the "Google Classroom" link on the left side of the menu.
