My mission as a teacher is to empower my students with the tools of knowledge and skills to succeed in the future. I’m dedicated to each child and strive for them to feel confident in his/her abilities to learn and grow. Together we can achieve gains and set a strong educational foundation.
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year, I am so excited to be your teacher! I absolutely love fifth grade and I’m looking forward to a great year here at Norris Elementary. Teaching is a dream come true for me and what I feel I am called to do. I love watching students learn and grow each day while sharing memories and lessons learned along the way. I strive to encourage each child to be the best they can be and I hope each student finds our classroom to be a safe, caring place where we can all grow together.
I look forward to spending this week really getting to know each student and preparing for a year where each child knows how special they are! Here’s a little bit about your teacher:
My name is Michelle Irons and I just celebrated my second anniversary with my husband Drew. We love to scuba dive together and enjoy as much time on the water as possible. I love our fluffy dog, Copper. He’s a Miniature Australian Shepard and the sweetest thing with four legs! I enjoy cooking and try at least one new recipe a week. Reading is one of my favorite relaxing hobbies and I like planting flowers and making our home our favorite place to be. Drew and I are active members of Faith Promise Church and enjoying serving in our small group and in the FP Kids ministry.
I feel so blessed to be here at Norris Elementary and to have the opportunity to be your child’s teacher. Together we will make this the best school year possible! I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone!
