Mrs. Hassell's Class
Welcome to 5th grade and thank you for visiting our ARE classroom website! For parents, this site acts as a resource for information on 5th Grade, as well as for my own classroom specifics. Some of the information may be presented as links, attachments, pages, or typed content.
A little about me...I've been teaching since 2006, most of those years have been here at Arapahoe Ridge Elementary. Believe it or not, I actually started teaching in third grade. From there I taught first grade for a year and am now teaching fifth grade. I've learned so much in each grade and every experience at school and couldn't imagine a more satisfying, yet ridiculously fun career!
Our year together will be one filled with fun, challenge, new learning, reflection, and a lot of questioning. Fifth grade is the final "elementary experience" and that said, I have a few main goals I'll use as a year-long focus as we prepare for your child's transition to middle school: advocating for themselves as learners, exploring and building our character to be the best human being you can be and how we want to be viewed in this world, and finally, learning how to be real thinkers and questioners to grow and better the world through social actions.
You can expect communication from me via multiple ways: quick reminders via text from Remind and email when attachments are necessary or if I need to reach you directly. To reach me, please contact via the contact form on this website. Calling ARE should be used for immediate and emergency needs.
Thank you for letting me be your child's teacher!
