My name is Shelly Gates and this is 6th year at Sequoia Elementary and my 3rd year teaching. Before teaching, I was an RSP aide assisting students in and out of the classroom. I look forward to watching my students grow and discover new facts in the classroom and out. My grade-level partners are Mrs. Elrod and Mrs. Nelson, between us we have 29 years of teaching experience.

What will the funds be used for

The funds will go towards 5th grade’s field trip to our state's capitol in Sacramento. Students will learn more about our state's government and how it functions. This will relates to our 5th grade social studies standard:

5.7 Students describe the people and events associated with the development of the U.S. Constitution and analyze the Constitution's significance as the foundation of the American republic.
