Welcome to Grade 5!

One of my family's favorite things to do is SNORKEL!  This picture is in Kenting:-)

Since this is the first blog post, I want to introduce myself to all of you.  My name is Ms.Overland and this is my second year teaching Grade 5 at DISK.  Until moving to Taiwan in January of 2017, I lived my entire life in Washington State.  I met my husband while attending the University of Washington, and we now have two children (they also attend DISK!).  We decided to move to Taiwan because we wanted to get to know my Taiwanese relatives, and have a chance for our family to bond while learning how to live in a new culture/environment.  Our original plan was to live here for one year.  However, we've enjoyed Taiwan so much that we've chosen to stay indefinitely!  We love the friendly people, the warm ocean, and the ability to be outdoors exploring year-round! 

This blog is intended to be a place where we will post pictures of our learning, as well as any classroom updates.  Homework, assignments, study guides, etc, will NOT be posted on this blog! For convenience, all teachers will utilize Google Classroom and post all class information there so you can see it all in one spot.  All you have to do is accept the invitations sent by me and your other teachers, and you will be ready to go!  Parents can access the same information, they just need to give teachers their email addresses and invitations will be sent to them, also.  

I am VERY excited about this coming school year!  I can't wait to get to know all of you!
