Sixth Grade

Sixth grade is an exciting year for students as it marks the culmination of elementary school.  Students tackle a challenging curriculum and honing their executive functioning skills as they prepare to enter middle school. 

In Language Arts, students explore

  • writing historical fiction
  • bias in media messages
  • developing theories about text and characters
  • strengthening their ability to talk about text

In Math, students reason through

  • ratios
  • integers
  • algebraic expressions 
  • fraction, decimal, and percent relationships

Science focuses on

  • the properties of water 
  • the relationship of the atmosphere
  • weather patterns and fronts
  • energy sources

Sixth-grade students will take the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) tests in reading and math.

This is my tenth year teaching at Lemon Road, my fifth year in sixth grade. Before, I taught fifth grade for six years, including a year in San Diego, and taught for a year as a middle and high school reading specialist in Upstate New York. It's always a joy to get to know students and their families. I enjoy traveling, hiking, biking, kayaking, baseball, football, board games, and spending time with family and friends.
