Who am I?

Howdy, y'all!  I am Rachel, and I am FifthismyJam!  I graduated from Stevenson University in Maryland with my degree in Elementary education in 2013.  I am married to a soldier, and we have been traveling this wonderful country for close to 17 years now.  Since traveling, it has been tough for me to stay in one place teaching.  I finally landed a fifth-grade position in Washington in 2015 (after I had our daughter).
We moved (in 2018) to Louisiana, where I taught 5th grade, compartmentalized, teaching Science and Social Studies.  I loved the change and the challenge.  I create science, social studies, and math curricula for fourth and fifth-grade teachers. My science curriculum is based on NGSS (standards). In 2020, we moved to Georgia and have been here since.
My philosophy: make every day count, make every student count!
I remind my students every year that they ARE going to college or finding a much-needed position in the trade that interests them the most.  Their future is so bright – they must wear shades to get there!!
