Hello Parents and Fifth Grade Students,
Welcome to the beginning of another wonderful year at Seven Hills Preparatory Academy. I am thrilled to be able to have your student in my fifth grade class this year. Working together with you to help your student reach his or her highest potential is something I look forward to this coming year.
This is my sixth year here at SHPA and I am lucky to be able to be working in 5th grade again. As we always encourage and teach our students to be lifelong students, I am practicing what I preach by going back to graduate school in education. Students will experience new ideas that are brought up in my classes with technology to get engaged and connect to their world outside of school. Look forward to fun ways to connect their homework to technology. I am enjoying being a first time mom to a beautiful little girl. I love sharing all my stories about her firsts with the students.
I am available to answer any questions that might arise throughout the school year, so please do not hesitate to contact me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org . I am looking forward to a great school year.
Ms. Barbara Wessman
