• Mrs. MacPhail's Writing Class

    Welcome to 5th grade Writing! I look forward to exploring the writing process with students and working to improve writing skills across diverse genres.  We will embark on a research project in the Spring that will allow students to write a research paper and present their topic.  We will explore new vocabulary with the Knowsys vocabulary program as we prepare them for higher level writing projects and assessments.  

    On a personal note, I'm very excited to start the 19-20 school year as a GT Academy teacher.  I have had the pleasure of teaching in public and private settings with classroom experiences ranging from Kinder to 6th grade.  My educational background has offered me the opportunity to obtain certifications in Early Childhood Development, General Education K-6, and a Masters Degree in Education.  I look forwarding to expanding my experiences here at the GT Academy, as I embark on my 17th year in the classroom.
