“ But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians 5: 22-23”
My name is Tiffany Burroughs, and I will proudly be teaching the 5th and 6th grade combine class of 2013-2014 school year. I am originally from South Carolina and currently residing in Fredericksburg, VA. I graduated with my bachelor degree in Psychology and currently pursuing my Masters in Elementary Education, with expectations to have it completed in the Summer of 2014. I am blessed to have a wonderful three year old son, who I absolutely adore, and who brings a lot of joy to my life! I enjoy teaching, reading, shopping, and spending time with family/friends. I have experience working with at risk Middle School age students, Pre-K, and Kindergarten over the past seven years. My goal for all my students has always been start and finish the school year with the same expectation….”Strive for excellence with great leadership qualities.” I base my academic and behavior plans upon the fruits of the spirit. Love- showing compassion in everything you do and caring strongly about others. Joy- having a sense of happiness regardless of what is happening to you and putting forth effort. Peace- being free from upsetting thoughts and feelings. Longsuffering- working carefully until finish without complaining. Gentleness- being kind and patient with others. Goodness- having a generous heart and spirit. Faith- believing in God for all things. Meekness- letting others feel special too. Temperance- stopping myself before I do wrong. By, walking in the fruits of the spirit, I believe God will have control and guide us through a successful school year!
My homework policy is based on effort, which is 15% of your grade. Be sure to complete homework on time and exemplify it as a review tool. Quizzes are 20%, tests are 40%, class participation is 10%, and projects are 15%.
I am extremely excited about working together as a team and producing great leaders. Please contact me by email or phone with any questions or concerns you may have. I am here to assist you and your child to be productive academically and spiritually. Again, welcome and I expect God to do wonderful things this school year and beyond!
