Ms. Kraft's Teacher Page
Welcome to 5th Grade Individuals & Societies! My name is Ms. Kraft and I am happy to be your child's teacher this year. The objectives for the school year is to practice reading strategies while learning about history and ourselves. We will also strengthen our writing skills by practicing different genres of writing by using the writing process. Throughout the year we will practice Social and Emotional Learning skills and Calm Classroom strategies.
I have been teaching for 14 years. I have my Bachelors in Elementary Education, Masters in Reading, and Masters in Educational Leadership. I hold certificates for teaching Social Sciences, English as Second Language, as well as my Reading Specialist Certification. I have an 18 year old son who is in college at Iowa State University studying Animal Sciences. He wants to become a veterinarian! We have two dogs at home, who keep me very busy. Jax and Dakota are both black labs and were adopted from the Anti-Cruelty Society. I also have a guinea pig, or shall I say WE have a guinea pig named Cubbie who is our class pet! He can't wait until we go back to school.
