My name is Kim Connel and I can't wait to jump into a year full of learning! I am delighted to be teaching 5th grade at Washington and have the opportunity to be your child's English/Language Arts teacher. Although this is my first year at Washington, I have taught in Midland for the past twelve years. I am super excited to be joining such an awesome campus. I know it is going to be a great year! I look forward to learning about your child as the year progresses.
Your child will be challenged and I will encourage them to become independent thinkers! Fifth grade will be more rigorous and it is more important than ever that your child be involved in the learning process.
I will give my best to your children, and I expect them to give me their best each and every day! My expectations and procedures are very well defined and your child will always know exactly what I expect of them. Working together we can make this year a great one! Thanks for your commitment and support!! If you ever need to contact me, please feel free to email me or call the school to set up a time to meet.
