Welcome to 5th Grade at NCSA!

Welcome to the 5th Grade! I am stepping into my third year of teaching and my third year at Nevada City School of the Arts. Despite this year’s challenges, I am excited to be a part of this wonderful learning community. Prior to NCSA, I graduated from Sonoma State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and received my teaching credential from CalStateTEACH.  Before pursuing a teaching career, I worked in various outdoor education, outdoor adventure, and summer camp jobs. I find my solace in the outdoors and hope to imbue this year’s fifth-grade class with a similar appreciation.



This coming year is an unprecedented time of learning, and despite the unknowns, we will strive for fun, growth, and adventure. Students will be exploring our watershed, getting dirty with hands-on science projects, reaching mathematician status, become an accomplished writer, and expanding our historical knowledge of our nation's beginnings. Students will learn to collaborate with classmates in creating incredible performances and projects throughout the year.



I look forward to an exciting year as we deepen our understanding of science, math, social studies, language arts, and ourselves!

5th Grade is a year of exploration, completion, and transformation.
