Welcome to 5th Grade!

Mrs. Michelle Petty

A Little About Your Teacher:  I have been teaching in the Bristol Township School District since August of 2004, right after I graduated from Penn State University (WE ARE...).  I have a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Holy Family University as well.  I have always believed that if you want to achieve your dreams, you need to work hard.  If you want to succeed, you must at least try and give it your best at all times.  As an educator, that is all I ask--try your best and positive things will happen!  I love watching children discover new things, and teaching allows me to do this on a daily basis.  When all is said and done, I hope that my students can say they learned something new each day in fifth grade.  

"The wonder of teaching is watching caterpillars become butterflies."

Have a safe, happy, and healthy summer!
