Welcome to Fifth Grade!
My name is Mrs. Coffman and I am very proud to be teaching ELA and Social Studies in the Cattaraugus/Little Valley School District. I live in Bradford, PA with my three children and dog and cat. We are one big, busy family.
I have been teaching fifth grade for 13 years, and I have a wealth of experience working with children of all ages. I graduated from Penn State University in 1991 with a degree in Communication Disorders. After establishing my family, I decided to go back to school to obtain my teaching certificate. I earned my certificate from the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford in 2006, at the same time that my youngest daughter was entering Kindergarten. It was important for me to be home with my children while they were very young. My good fortune has brought me to your child's classroom and I am thrilled to be here.
I look forward to a fun and exciting year full of great activities. Please know that I value your input and feel very strongly about building that home to school relationship. I hope to work with you, to help your child achieve success! Please feel free to contact me at any time at the above email address.
