Welcome to fifth grade! My name is Amanda Suter and I will be your child’s homeroom and ELA teacher. I am new to fifth grade, but I am not new to Avon. Last year, I had the wonderful opportunity to be a part of the Avon staff as a long-term sub for MaryLou Gamellia. Prior to subbing in Avon, I was a classroom teacher for six years. I taught second and fourth grade. I live in Avon with my husband and three children: Molly, Lilly and Jake.
Fifth grade is an amazing year full of independence, expectations, responsibilities and some fun! There will be high expectations for your child to be accountable for their work, actions and behavior. I will do all that I can to help guide them as they discover what they need to be successful.
I look forward to working with you and your child throughout this year. Communication between home and school is extremely important for your child’s success. Please feel free to contact me at school or email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns. It’s going to be a GREAT year!
