Welcome to the 5th Grade

Mrs. Michelle Amann-Kress

Michelle Amann-KressHello and welcome new fifth graders!

My name is Mrs. Kress and I am so excited to get to know you throughout this school year!

Here is a little bit about me: I was born in Germany, but I was raised in a super small town in Northern New York. I moved to Virginia 8 years ago to begin my teaching journey! I originally started teaching as a Special Education Teacher (in Fairfax County), so I have had the experience of teaching multiple different grade levels. My husband and I live in Woodbridge with our 2-year-old son, Noah (as seen in the picture), and our two dogs, Mollie and Lucy. During our free time, we love to take Noah and our pups on long walks and spend as much time outside as possible! Some of my favorite things to do are kayaking, swimming, scrap booking, reading, cooking, and baking! My favorite flower is a sunflower and my favorite color is green.

I am beyond excited to get to know you all as this school year goes on! You can always reach out to me atamannkme@pwcs.edu :) 

 

Ms. Christine McCullum

Christine McCullumHello everyone.

This is my 18th year of teaching, and my second at Jenkins Elementary School. I am so excited to be a part of this community again! I love spending time with my family, reading, being outdoors, the fall season, working on home renovations, and either playing or watching sports.

I absolutely love teaching!

Mrs. Beth Morin

Beth MorinWelcome!

My name is Beth Morin and I am very excited to be your 5th grade teacher this year!  I believe that students, parents, and teachers must work together as a team to achieve student success. I cannot wait to get to know you and your family!

I have been teaching in Prince William County for 17 years, first as a Special Education teacher, then teaching 4th and 5th grade. I am currently working on my master’s degree through George Mason University.

I love seeing students learn, explore, and grow academically. My goal each year is to help and challenge them to reach their fullest potential. I believe it is important for everyone to feel safe and respected.  We will work throughout the year to establish a class that is supportive of friendships and builds self-confidence and trust. 

We will have a fun and productive year as we explore Science, Math, Reading, Writing, and Social Studies together. You will be challenged as you learn how to make a movie, create presentations, design and carry out science experiments, and much more!

Communication with parents and students is extremely important to me.  The best way to contact me is through email at morinba@pwcs.edu, which I check frequently.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy outdoor activities like walking my dog Lucy, hiking, swimming, and gardening. If I am not outside, then I am reading all types of books.

Jessica VivierGreetings!

My name is Jessica Vivier and I will be your teacher this year. I look forward to meeting all of my new students and embarking on a new school year post Covid!

This will be my 11th year teaching. I have previously taught 3rd and 4th grades in Newport News, VA. I recently moved to Prince William County with my husband and 5 cats. I have taught 4th and 5th  grade at Jenkins Elementary.  My hobbies include photography, cooking, gardening, and running. 

I know that last year was a unique experience, and whether you were learning from home or learning from school I know we all did our best. We’ll have a fresh start in August and I know we’ll have a successful school year!

I can’t wait!

Ms. Vivier
