Teaching 5th grade Science and Social Studies as part of TEAM 5T !
Welcome to my website for my classes at Rogers Middle School. I teach 5th grade Science and Social Studies on TEAM 5T, who will all BE HEROES IN THE MAKING! This is my 9th year teaching middle school, between 5th and 6th grade! I am married and have one daughter who attends one of the amazing Pearland Elementary Schools in the district! In my spare time, I like sports, to work out, and I like to read (if I have time!). This website will give you valuable resources to assist you in my classroom, as well as give you information on grading, tutorials and my conference times. The tab for class calendar will update for important days when major grades are being taken. There is also a tab for QUICK LINKS which lists websites to review Social Studies content (as well as other content areas) such as games, videos, and other links. We have many exciting things coming soon, so be sure to check back on my page often to keep up!
My conference time is
10:10-10:50 each day.
(Please try to schedule by email or phone
at least 2 days ahead if possible)
Parent and Student Information
Folders will be sent home every Thursday with important information such as graded work, work that needs corrections, accolades, and conduct cards. Conduct cards must be signed and returned NO LATER than Friday the same week.
Parents please remember to check SKYWARD to keep updated on the grades your child is receiving. We have shown all our students how to check SKYWARD themselves so they may stay on top of their work while becoming more independent.

WEEKLY CHECK IN for CLASS
OCTOBER 1st - OCTOBER 5th
(Monday October 8th is Columbus Day Holiday - No School!)
This week in SCIENCE we are discussing FORMS OF ENERGY. We are looking into the acronym M.E.L.T.S. which describes our 5 types of energy. Looking into these types of energy we want to learn how things consume energy as well as produce energy. There will be many different forms of activities to learn about these energies. Vocabulary, powerpoints, card sorts and general discussions are some of the things we will be doing. This is not a long unit or lesson so I have the COMMON ASSESSMENT SCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY...There is one option I will be asking the students... if they don't feel ready (majority) for the test on Friday... we will take it AFTER THE HOLIDAY on MONDAY, when we return on Tuesday.
* Common Assessment over FORMS OF ENERGY will be EITHER FRIDAY OCT 5th OR TUESDAY OCT 9th in Science!! *
THIS WEEK IN SOCIAL STUDIES we are discussing Early Explorers and their explorations. We are discussing the reasons they have traveled and what they are hoping to find in new lands. We will be discussing Columbus, Vespucci, and others describing why they want to travel. By the end of the week we are going to be discussing an EXPLORER PROJECT THAT WILL TAKE PLACE IN CLASS ALL NEXT WEEK and DUE BY NEXT FRIDAY IN CLASS.
Please let me know if you have any questions or do not understand something your student is working on in my class. Thank you.
