Welcome to the 5th grade at Hancock Elementary! My name is Robert Lee and I am so excited to be teaching in the Chandler School District. Fifth grade is an extremely pivotal time for children - a unique time because it is a bridge between the primary grades and middle school. Students will learn to become more independent and take on responsibility for their education. It is a fun year full of hands on projects, simulations, and writing. I am looking forward to another great year in 5th grade!
My Education and Professional Background
I have always loved school! I tell my students everyday that I enjoyed coming to school and being around other people. It was an easy choice to attend college to become a teacher. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2009 with a bachelor's degree in elementary education. I started teaching in kindergarten, but quickly learned that age group wasn't for me! I moved to Chandler and the 5th grade in 2011, which was a perfect fit for my teaching style.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that students need to be in a safe environment for them to learn. They need to be able to make mistakes, learn from them, and give and receive feedback. It is a collaborative effort between students, teachers, and parents that will create this positive environment. We will work as a team to create fun and memorable experiences that will stay with students throughout their educational careers.
