Meet the Teacher
Welcome to 5th grade! My name is Mrs. Wendy Sparrow (formerly Ms. Jones. I got married last March. ) and this is my 25th year of teaching elementary school. I taught two years in Fairfax, Virginia, one year at Landmark Christian School, and fifteen years at Hood Avenue Primary. I feel fortunate to say that this is my 7th year of teaching at Sara Harp Minter Elementary. Both of my children went through Sara Harp Minter Elementary, so it is a very special school to me.
I have two children of my own. My son, Liam is 17 years old and is a senior at Whitewater High School. My daughter, Erin is 15 ½ years old and she is in 10th grade at Whitewater High School. I have experienced firsthand all of the emotions that take place when your child enters his/her last year of elementary school and I will do my best to help alleviate any concerns that you or your child may have about 5th grade. Fifth grade will be full of new and rewarding experiences for you and your child. This is a time where your child learns to accept more responsibility and demonstrate a great deal of independence. I have a class website that I hope will be helpful in keeping both you and your child informed. You can access it through our school website or by going directly to it at the address below. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please contact me. You may send a note in your child’s homework binder, email me, or call the school and leave a message. I will get back in touch with you as soon as possible. I will also be setting up parent conferences in the fall to have the opportunity to speak with you about your child’s progress and goals for the year. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to work with your child this year. Working together, I know we will have a successful year.
