4th & 5th grade is a great place to be. In our multi-age classrooms, students dive deep into compelling topics through collaboration and research. Teachers specialize so students learn from math, science, and ELA experts. Students focus on research and writing informational and narrative text. Students learn to be critical thinkers through productive struggle and discourse in math. Students engage in making authentic products in math, science, and language arts.
I am Mrs Thornock. This is my 7th year teaching and my first year at Greenwood. I love reading books, writing, and outdoor adventures with my family. We like to go whitewater rafting and hiking. I enjoy watching movies and playing games with my family. I am a mother of 4 children 15, 19, 21, and 23 years old. I love being a mom!
My family and I have recently purchased two horses, and we are learning a lot about taking care of and riding our horses. I love being a teacher and finding creative ways to help my students to learn. I am passionate about the Greenwood values focused on a holistic education. I love how students here at Greenwood are focused on creative and critical thinking, and high quality work. I am so glad I have joined the Greenwood community!
I love when my students learn and grow and achieve their learning goals.
We can't always choose the music life plays for us, but we can choose how we dance to it.
