Welcome to my teacher page!

Governor Pat Quinn signed Erin's Law in January of 2013, which requires all schools in the state of Illinois to provide age appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education programs for their students in grades Pre-K through 12. In response to this legislation, Frankfort School District 157-C will be adding, "Child Lures Prevention: Think First and Stay Safe", curriculum for the school year. The curriculum is available in the school office for parents to preview.

Is reading part of your family's daily routine?

Reading is the most important skill because it is the basis for learning throughout the school day.

Reading takes practice.

Make reading a part of your family's daily routine.

*Read every night with your child or along side your child.

*Ask your child to occasionally read aloud and listen to how they're able to read with fluency-expression, accuracy, rate, phrasing, and punctuation.

*We will be working on reading more fluently in the classroom with weekly goals. What will be your child's goal this week?

*Our fifth grade homework expectation of students is to read a minimum of 80 minutes per week.
