Hello! My name is Dana Robinson and I am so excited to be your new teacher! This is my 15th year teaching elementary school - 14 of them as a 5th-grade teacher. I have taught in Florida, Ashburn, Round Hill, and now in my home school - Lovettsville!
I am originally from Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I went to college at the University of Hartford in Connecticut and graduated with my B.S in Elementary Education. Now I live here in Lovettsville with my family - my husband Scott (Coach Scott to some local softball players!), daughter Callie, and son Colt. We also have a dog named Gunner. We love living in Lovettsville and am happy to finally join the Lovettsville Elementary School community.
When I am not teaching I love reading (especially at the beach!), visiting family in Massachusetts and Ohio, watching football (GO PATS...minus Tom Brady and my guy GRONK :( ), taking walks, and watching my kids play sports.
I LOVE being a teacher and the classroom is one of my happy places. As this year will start off with distance learning, I know we will create a strong classroom community online. I work hard to build a positive learning community full of creativity, high expectations, and most of all - FUN! Fifth grade is an important year for my students. We will not only learn our curriculum, but we will learn how to be independent, set and accomplish new goals, and be a part of a community of learners. Our Class Motto this year is "Rise and Shine". What will you rise to overcome this year? How will you shine? I know that you all have the potential to be AWESOME this year - I can't wait to help you see that in yourselves. If you have any questions, please contact me at email@example.com. See you soon!
