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 fourth year here at SHPA and I am lucky to be able to be working in 5th grade again.    Bloomington has always been my home and I am lucky to be teaching in a district that molded who I am.  I am a passionate reader and look forward to seeing what kind of books our class will read this year.  I am always looking for my next great read. I hope that I, along with the students, am inspired to read something new.  Check in to see what books are being read in Ms. Bradford’s class. 

          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  I am looking forward to a great school year.
