Welcome to Mrs. Reynolds Fifth Grade ELA and Social Studies classes!
Thank you for visiting my webpage. I am excited about teaching Social Studies and Language Arts together again. I have been teaching at Shawboro for seven years and this is my 18th year teaching overall. Time flies when you love what you do!
I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Old Dominion University and an Educational Specialist Degree in School Administration from the University of Virginia. I am state certified in Elementary Education k-6, preschool, and School Administration. I am also locally certified in Gifted Education.
I live in Currituck County and have two children in Currituck County Schools. I am very active in the community. I have coached recreational sports and helped PTOs. I am currently a board member with both Currituck Kids Inc. (chairwoman) and the Moyock Woman's Club (treasurer). I am very proud of the work of both organizations, particularly their support of education and the students in Currituck County.
I have taught 5th grade Language Arts and Social Studies for 5 years. My passion is helping students develop a love of learning. In class, we will use PBL (project based learning) to take a cross curricular approach to learning. We will use literature to learn about the events of the past. We will increase our reading comprehension skills and write daily in a journal. We will also use chromebook technology to work digitally and create projects that reflect our learning.
Please be on the look out for information and news on our class dojo page and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
