Hello and welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!
My name is Lorie Fox and I will be teaching fifth-grade math at Catawba Elementary School this year. My daughter, Riley, and I -- along with a tortoise-shell tabby named Kensey and Kilo, the blond German shepherd “wonder dog” -- live in the Catfish community beside my childhood home. Riley is a 14-year-old freshman at Bandys who keeps me hopping from the basketball court to the softball field. We are both very excited to be part of Trojan country this year...go, Green and Gold!
2018-2019 marks my twenty-third year of teaching, with eight years in fifth-grade and fifteen in ESL. Math is my favorite subject to learn and to teach, and it is my goal to make it understandable, meaningful, and fun as we venture through this fifth-grade year together!
