Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Coleman

I will be your 5th grade Reading, Language, Writing, and History teacher! I love reading, and I love to inspire young minds to find the joy in reading and writing. In class this year we will study American history Post-Civil War all the way up to present day, as well as specific Tennessee History and Government!

This will be my 5th year teaching 5th grade, and I have loved every minute of it. I am married, and we have a cute little dog named Hedy. My personal hobbies include sewing, reading, and eating. I love watching Netflix! I went to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I majored in middle grades 4-8 ELA and social studies. Expect to do a lot of reading and writing in my classroom!

This year we will be doing the 40 book challenge! Our goal is that every student in the 5th grade read 40 books, about 1 book a week, by the end of the year! I am excited to see your kids engage and stretch their limits as readers!
