Welcome to 5th Grade at Lost Creek Elementary

Welcome! I am a 5th grade teacher at Lost Creek Elementary. I graduated from Indiana State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a minor in reading. My wife and I are both teachers and we have two very energetic boys that love playing sports. My goal each day is to promote a safe, fun, and energetic learning environment where everyone feels welcome and included.

  • A package of dry erase markers
  • Dry erase board eraser (this can be a clean old sock that lost its mate)
  • A package of pencils (I prefer mechanical but not mandatory)
  • 3 packs of loose leaf binder paper
  • 2 composition notebooks
  • 1 spiral bound notebook
  • 1 package of index cards
  • 1 bottle of hand sanitizer
  • 1 container of Lysol wipes
  • 3 boxes of tissues
  • 1 roll of paper towel
  • 1 box of ziploc bags (quart)
  • 4 two pocket folders
  • A 1 inch clear view binder
  • Colored pencils
  • Crayons
  • Washable markers
  • At least 2 red pens
  • Package of pens of any color
  • Pink eraser (not the giant erasers)
  • A package of glue sticks
  • 1 pack of 3 inch Post-It-Notes
  • 3 highlighters (preferably 3 different colors)
  • Pencil Box (optional)
  • 1 pair of scissors
  • Always be respectful of the teacher’s right to teach, other students’ right to learn, and everyone in the classroom.
  • NO cell phone or gum in my classroom.
  • Arrive to class on time every day with ALL your needed books and supplies.
