Hello! My name is Ann Stropes. This will be my 17th 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, but 5th grade is "my jam." 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 former district Smartboard Trainer and a current teacher consultant for the Oklahoma Writing Project. It is my goal for every student in my classes to be successful and to grow to be lifelong learners and readers. I want your children to leave my class loving books and knowing that they are writers.
I have two beautiful girls, a 7 year old and a 4 year old, who continue to amaze me everyday. Your children will probably get to know my oldest quite well, as she also attends Red Oak.
Your children can tell you, I love all things coffee, art, and geek. My favorite Starbucks drink is a Breve Sugar Free Cinnamon Dolce Latte, or a Breve Matcha Tea Latte with sugar free syrup. (Yeah, I gave up sugar...sad, but better for me). One of favorite things is to sit on a cool fall or winter morning snuggled on my couch with a warm cup with my Kindle,a good book, my journal, or sketch pad. I'm a nerd at heart. I love talking books, science, movies, Star Trek, Star Wars, Marvel, DC.
