Welcome to 5th Grade Math!

    5th Grade Math
    I am the 5th grade math teacher at Von Steuben Middle School.
    This is my 10th year teaching in Peoria Public Schools.
    I am thrilled to be here and to be serving your family! This website will serve as a useful  tool for you throughout the school year. On this website you will find classroom and school wide expectations and procedures. You will also be able to see past activities and units of study as well as the ability to look ahead into what we will be studying in the future. Lastly, you will find some useful links to help and guide your learning from home. Go VIKINGS!!! 
    Distance Learning:
    • Welcome to School year 2020-2021. This is obviously not the beginning of the year we anticipated or hoped for; however, we are super excited to support your family and provide rigorous and engaging instruction and discussion through distance education. All students will follow a schedule and have virtual live lessons each day for math, ELA, science/social studies, PE, and Encore classes. Students must be online and participating in class as attendance will be taken. Students may visit the building through Friday, August 21st to pick up technology, class materials, and meet their teacher. A copy of your students schedule is found on the "Classroom Expectations" subpage on this website. Please see the video link below for a message from me about classroom procedures, expectations, and instructions as we progress on Monday, August 24th to virtual education.
