All about Mrs. Wilcox
My teaching style is one that is structured
but creative. I implement Reading and Language Arts using the Four
Blocks Method, and other resources. Writing will be done everyday.
Math, Social Studies and Science are accomplished with textbooks and
projects incorporated into the program. A unit featuring the states
and their capital will be covered in the second semester. Subject matter
in all curriculum areas is driven by the Grade Level
Expectations provided by the Department of Elementary and Secondary
Education, the Missouri Assessment Plan,
and the school district.
I am beginning my 20th year
of teaching and my 18th year at Harrisburg. I have taught 3rd grade,
5th grade, and 6th grade. I have been in my current position of fifth
grade for two years.
I am married to Greg and we have two children, Justin
and Jessy. Greg is a contractor and works in Columbia. Justin
will begin his 2nd year at MU in the fall 06. Jessy will be a sophomore
I grew up in and graduated from the Potosi R-3
School Systems in Potosi, MO. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science
degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia. I have also attained
a Master's of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from MU. I
am currently taking other college courses to further my education.
In my spare time I enjoy being with my family.
I also love the challenge of cardmaking and scrapbooking. I collect
and sell Longaberger baskets. I enjoy watching all sports, especially
the St. Louis Cardinals.
