Hello! Welcome to fifth grade! My name is Mr. Sams! I am originally from a little farming community outside of Asheville, NC called Leicester. I grew up on a 50 acre farm. I love anything to do with the outdoors! I moved to Greensboro in 2004 to student teach at....Jesse Wharton. Aside from 3 years (2007-2010) I have taught all of my years at Jesse Wharton, in Fifth grade. My family includes my wife, 3 daughters, 2 dogs and 1 cat. I am thoroughly excited teaching reading this year, even though it will look differently than it has in the past. I will make a promise to you that if you work hard this year and try the things I ask you to....you will LOVE reading more than you do now. Trust me, I was the kid in fifth grade who would have rather piled all of the books up and roasted marshmallows. So if I can turn in to an avid reader, because of my fifth grade teacher....so can you.
For all pertinent information log on to you canvas account and go to our 5th Grade ELA Course. There you will find everything you need to know about ELA in 5th grade this year!
