    If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.

    If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
    If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
    If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
    If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
    If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
    If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
    If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
    If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.
    If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
    If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
    If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
    If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.
    If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
    If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
    If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.

         Hello, this web page has been created for the convenience of the parents and students of room 309.  This site is  being made available to help parents (and students) to stay up-to-date on their student's learning.  You will be given access to important information, such as classroom assignments, homework assignments, as well as upcoming activities. It is important to me that we work as a team in order to best prepare our students to not only be successful, but also college and career ready.  Together we can raise our students up as high as they can soar! 
         With that being said, I encourage you to please take a few minutes to acquaint yourself with and understand the 5th grade Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) for both ELA and Math, as well as the curriculum for this year by examining these expectations placed on your student.  I hold high expectations for my students.  I expect every student to meet or exceed the Common Core Standards. No Excuses; No Exceptions!
         Please feel free to e-mail me a message with any questions or concerns by clicking on the e-mail Mrs. Field button at the bottom of the left links column.

    My Philosophy:

          Education should be facilitated learning, motivated in a safe, creative environment, focusing on the connection of new information to old, with insightful understanding, modeling and independence. 

         I pledge to be a positive influence on my students and to help them to discover, explore and develop their inner-self.  I want to give every student the opportunity to become a respected, responsible, strong, life-long learner.  I want students to feel secure enough with themselves to feel independent to make their own choices and be confident their final decision is truly the best choice.  And, if it happens to be a bad decision to be able to stand up and deal with the consequences and to learn from their mistake.  Dealing with academic, personal, and social adversity will make students stronger and better able to cope with complex problems they will encounter throughout life.  My efforts will be placed in living up to the poem; "A hundred years from now... it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove... but that the world is a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child."
