Hello and welcome to Mr. Greer’s 5th and 6th Grade Classroom. I am excited to be starting my sixth year at Spero Academy. I have worked in the education/special education field for the past 20 years with both Elementary and Middle school students.
This year is extra exciting as the Spero Academy family grows to include our first year of sixth graders. We are going to be learning new skills, and strengthening previously taught literacy skills, in both reading and writing using the Four Blocks Literacy Model. Four Blocks is a comprehensive language arts model that allows students to develop their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. Starting this year we will be implementing a brand new Math curriculum. Math Expressions is a research-proven curriculum that encourages students to get hands-on with math. The curriculum provides opportunities for exploring, discussing, and demonstrating an understanding of key math concepts.
I hope to increase student’s learning experiences through providing a variety of engaging activities and lessons that are both challenging and rewarding. I plan to learn along with my students as we engage in collaborative and hands-on leaning experiences.
I have been happily married to my wife Brandi for 13 years. We have two beautiful, energetic daughters, Ruby (8) and Maggie (5), who add extra excitement and delight to our lives. This past July we took a family camping trip to The Black Hills in South Dakota. We had a great time and enjoyed spending the time together. We look forward to going on more family camping trips in the future.
I am glad to be a part of the Spero Academy community, and look forward to another fantastic year.
