Meet Mrs. Squires
My name is Mrs. Squires and I teach 5th grade Language Arts at Center Point-Urbana Intermediate School! I graduated from Central College in 2010 where I majored in Elementary Education with a Middle School Endorsement. I love teaching and there is nothing I would rather do with my days August-May! :) When I do have some extra time I like to stay very busy! I coach sophomore volleyball, 7th grade girls basketball, and middle school track. When I am not teaching or coaching I enjoy golfing, reading, gardening, and sewing. You will see many of my sewing projects throughout the year! :) I live outside of Center Point with my husband, Adam. Mr. Squires is the high school PE teacher. He also coaches football and middle school basketball. Both of us really enjoying teaching and coaching and staying active. I can't wait to learn more about you throughout the school year!
Throughout the year we learn some pretty great stuff! Language Arts is made up of many different parts. You will have spelling tests each week with 20 words. We will also work on different vocabulary words each week. Grammar will be a big part as well. If you have heard from other students that I have detention words, that is true! That is why it is important to speak correctly as well! :) We will also be spending a lot of time with reading different stories and working with comprehension strategies. Reading is so much fun when you find topics that interest you!
What book should I read next?
