Hello, and welcome to 5th Grade! My name is Ms. Karam. This is my sixth year teaching at Sumner Elementary. Prior to teaching at Sumner, I taught as th Math Specialist at Newcomers School for a year, for eight years I taught 4th Grade at a private Christian school, and I also taught English in Japan for almost two years. I believe that education is vital to each child's social, intellectual, and emotional development. A good education can open doors to a bright future - which is my wish for each child on my classroom. This year will be a year like no other with new possibilities of reaching each individual student to help every student to reach their highest potential.
I look forward to partnering with you to make your child's 5th Grade school year an engaging learning experience. I will do my best to make the first 9 weeks of remote learning (and possibly longer) as meaningful to your child as it would have been in the classroom.
