Elizabeth Chadwick - Grade 5


Welcome to my web page. I am a native of Augusta. In fact I went to school at the old Farrington as did my father. I am a graduate of Cony High School and the University of Maine. I also have a Master's Degree from the University of Maine. This is my 47th year teaching at Farrington as well as my 47th  year in fifth grade. When I am not in school, I love to read or knit. My favorite place to be is near the ocean. 
Even though I have been teaching for many years, I still love what I do. Every year there are new challenges and new children. There isn't anything better than a smile or a hug from a child that you know you have helped in some large or small way.

The best way to reach me is by e-mail.

 Homework is not an every day occurance. I will be giving children some extra math sheets. They can do them at school or at home. Also if work is not completed at school, I may send it home to be finished. Of course children should read every night.

We have a new reading program this year. For the present time, there will be no weekly spelling word. We will be concentrating on vocabulary and how it is used in writing.
