Welcome to Fifth Grade!
My name is Ms. Strogen and I am very excited to be your teacher this year!
I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been teaching for over 17 years. I have a Bachelors degree in Marketing and a Masters Degree in Education with a focus on Curriculum and Design. I have two sons and my husband is a Captain with the Mesa Fire and Medical Department. I love traveling, camping and hiking. I also love reading, math, science, coffee, art, gardening, writing and music.

Work/ Turning in Assignments Policy
Parents have a vital role in the success of their child in school. Please check in with your child each day/night and check their work for thoroughness, legibility and that assignments are turned in on-time. I will check in with students in class to see how work is going and to see if they need help in any subject area. If students have questions or need help please have them reach out to me ASAP by email. I will respond ASAP. In addition, please help your child find a quiet area to work at home each day. This might be a quiet area where they will be able to focus on their online learning and focus without any interruption. I ask parents to encourage your child to read for fun approximately 20-30 minutes every night. I know with busy schedules this can be challenging. However, this will provide numerous benefits to your child including comprehension skills, vocabulary and spelling. I often have my son read to me when we are in the car or as I am cooking dinner.
Please contact me with any questions, comments or concerns throughout the year by email.
