Welcome to Ms. Polinsky’s ELA class!

Keep a small problem a small problem.
I am so excited to welcome your family to my classroom. I recently graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor's Degree. I am committed to ensuring that every student is equipped to excel in and out of the classroom, providing the love and care every child deserves. I am a firm believer that each student can and will create positive change in our world when held to high academic standards. I am so looking forward to working with you to foster personal and academic growth in every student.
My 5th and 6th grade ELA students will leave my classroom as critical thinkers, fluent readers and writers, and will deeply value the importance of literature across genres in creating social change. My students will be empathetic with a developed sense of self-worth, and they will embrace challenges as opportunities for growth.
