Meet Mrs. StropesHello! My name is Ann Stropes. This will be my 16th year teaching with Moore Public Schools. I'm always excited to be at Red Oak and teaching my beloved 5th grade reading and language!I am very passionate about what I do. I have previously taught 4th grade and worked as a media specialist. I have a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education with honors from the University of Central Oklahoma. I have also worked toward my master's degree in Library Media and Information. I am a district Smartboard Trainer and a teacher consultant for the Oklahoma Writing Project. I have also been selected as a "Reading Ideas" model teacher. It is my goal for every student in my classes to be successful and to grow to be lifelong learners and readers.My husband and I have two beautiful girls, a 6 year old and a 3 year old, who continue to amaze us everyday. We also have a cat named Margaret and a fish named Seaweed.Your children can tell you, I love all things coffee. My favorite thing is to sit on a cool fall or winter morning snuggled on my couch with a warm cup and a good book or my journal.
