WELCOME 5th Graders! This year you will be embarking on a grand adventure with Mrs. Locke! I am so excited to have each of you in my fun-filled learning adventure classroom this year! I am excited to inspire, encourage, guide and cheer you on in this transitional journey in which you will be inspired and encouraged to set lofty goals, challenge yourself to not only achieve these goals but to exceed each and every one, and then celebrate your awesome successes along the way. As Dr. Seuss said best, "Oh, The Places You'll Go!" This awesome adventure called 5th grade is a spectacular journey towards your next grand adventure - Middle School! I am honored to be your guide on this amazing journey. We are going to have an AWESOME year of fun, laughter, friendships, learning experiences and opportunities, and memories!
A little about your guide: I have been married to my wonderful husband Bob for 28 years and counting, I am mom to my 2 amazing children - my son Garrett who is 25 and my daughter Jordan who is 22, and have been an adventure guide in the classroom for 20 + years! My favorite hobbies are spending time with my wonderful family, baking, gardening, and basically doing anything outdoors; especially if it includes being on the beach! The beach is my happy place! I truly believe that every day is a gift and an opportunity - how we spend and what we choose to do with these 1,440 minutes of opportunities daily is up to us!
