Meet the New Fifth Grade Teacher
Hello! My name is Tonya Pointer, and I want to take a moment to introduce myself. I have been working in education for over 24 years. For the past 10 years I have been employed in CMS as a classroom teacher and most recently a Literacy Facilitator I received my Bachelors degree from Oklahoma Christian University and completed my licensure course work in Elementary Education from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I have a Master’s degree in Elementary Education and earned recognition as a National Board Certified Teacher specializing in Literacy.
I am excited about this school year and getting to know each of my students and their families. I remember fifth grade being such a pivotal time in life. I believe that properly preparing students for this transition is a priority for their overall social, emotional and academic development. I am committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment that fosters optimal achievement.
I am Looking Forward to a Productive and Successful Year,
5th Grade Teacher
