Welcome to Ms. Ketchen's 5th Grade Class!
Welcome to fifth grade,
This is my 21st year teaching at Desert Willow and loving every minute of it! I look forward to teaching and sharing every day with your child. Fifth grade brings an increased sense of responsibility, leadership, and expectations. Since more will be expected of students individually, they will be held accountable for their work habits, work completion, ability to meet deadlines and observance of classroom and school rules. As we work together to continue to instill in each child a sense of confidence, self-esteem, and responsibility, it is my hope that each child will strive for his/her highest potential. If at any time during the year you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to continuing to work together to assist your child to achieve in all aspects of their education.
