Hello Students and Parents!
My name is Mrs. Strong and I am thrilled to be your 5th Grade Language Arts and Social Studies teacher this school year! I can’t wait to get to know each one of you and your families.
This is my 6th year teaching and 2nd year at Saddlewood. I previously taught 5th and 6th Grades at The Villages Charter School. I grew up in Citrus County, and went to college at The University of Florida. Go Gators! I am married, and I have two sweet babies, a boy and a girl. We also happen to have the coolest Dalmatian in the world, Lou Dog. I love chocolate chip cookies, Chick-fil-A, and college football! :)
This year we will become stronger readers, experts on American history, and how to be independent learners. We will also be learning how to write informative and opinion text based essays.
I know a new school year can bring a lot of nerves and excitement. Whether it is an academic, social or any other type of need, I am here for you! I am looking forward to creating a year full of kindness, friendships, and memories together. 5th Grade is going to be a great place for a fresh start to work hard, be responsible and make it your year of success!
