About Our Classroom

Switching Classes in 5th Grade

We have 5 fifth-grade teachers at Fairview this year. Although the other 5th grade classes are in teams and will be switching between two teachers for ELA and math, our homeroom will be with me for both subjects.  All students will, however, rotate through every 5th grade teacher for science instruction.
