5th - Heather D'Alessio

Hello and Welcome!

This will be my fifth year at Richfield School and I will be teaching 5th grade this year.

All About Me: Yes, the rumors are true, I am a Richfield alumni!  I graduated in 2002/2003 and am happy to be back at Richfield as a teacher.  Look for me in the graduation pictures in the front hall of Richfield School!  I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh with my bachelor's degree in Education and a minor in Science.  I spend much of my time outside of work with my family and friends camping, hiking, kayaking, or skiing.  I also played many sports, such as basketball, volleyball, and soccer and will be coaching volleyball and 8th grade girls basketball at Richfield this year.  

Skyward and Assignment Due Dates:

Skyward is a tool provided to all Richfield families for you to keep track of your student's grades and progress throughout the year.  Here is where I will be posting graded work and updating your student's grade for each of my classes.  Please use this tool to stay updated on your student's success in my class.  Also, please keep in mind that some projects will take longer to grade then others, and that I will do my best to get the grades updated in a timely manner.

As for upcoming assignments and due dates, I require the students be responsible for this.  I require an assignment notebook for each student to fill out and utilize to accomplish homework and assigned tasks in my class.  If a major project or test is announced, I will also communicate this to you via email to the best of my abilities.  Also, many of my rubrics, study guides, and project expectations are shared with each student in their google drive class folder.  If you wish to dig deeper into my curriculum, simply go into your student's google drive.
