Profile:

My name is Mrs. Pam Brestensky and I am your 5th grade  Language Arts teacher at East Union Intermediate Center.  I have been teaching at Deer Lakes since 1990.  Prior to teaching 5th grade, I previously taught 3rd grade and Title One Like Math all at Deer Lakes.   
 
I love teaching and love all the wonderful rewards that it brings.  I have had the opportunity to work with many students and families over the years, and I consider myself truly blessed.   Thank you for sharing your child with me.   
 
I am married, have two children, and a golden retriever named Cassie.  
 
Fun Facts:   We adopted our children from Guatemala. 
 
WORK HARD, STAY HUMBLE, BE KIND 
                

Assignments:

Welcome to 5th grade and my classroom.   As we all know, this is a new learning experience that we are headed through together.  I will be learning this year along with all of you.   I am excited to be on this journey as a team with you the parents, myself, and most important of all, your child.   Here's looking forward to an awesome year!
 

Please make sure your child is prepared for distance learning each and every day.   They will need to have a pencil, notebooks, textbooks, and earbuds.   I expect the students to be on with me "LIVE" each day (unless of course,  they are sick, internet outage, or another emergency), and I  also expect them to actively participate during our class.  I also hope that they have some area in your home where they can fully concentrate on our learning session and create fewer distractions for themselves and others,   I promise you we will have time this year to share our pets, favorite foods, siblings, etc, while remote learning. :) This will make for a better and more fun learning experience for all.  

*PLEASE SHOOT ME A QUICK EMAIL TO LET ME KNOW IF YOUR CHILD WILL BE MISSING OUR LIVE SESSION*

THANK YOU!
