Fifth-Grade English Language Arts Teacher

I am currently a fifth-grade language arts teacher at a suburban school outside of Milwaukee. This is my first year in fifth grade—I previously taught third and sometimes fourth grade for approximately 15 years. I earned my National Board certification in 2013 and currently serve as a mentor to other teachers going through the National Board process. I’m constantly looking for ways to improve my teaching and truly enjoy sharing my experience with those who are new to the profession.
