Mrs. Britnie Winters
Hello! My name is Britnie Winters and I will be your child’s fifth grade teacher. A little bit of information about me, this is
my fifteenth year of teaching but my seventh year teaching fifth grade. Previously I have taught sixth grade, so I know where your child is headed. I taught sixth grade in Oregon for three years in an elementary school, then one year at Lowell Scott Middle School, and finally four years at Meridian Middle School. I have been married for twenty-four years and have three wonderful children who drive me crazy! I have a son going into his sophmore year at the College of Western Idaho, a daughter starting high school at Mountain View High School, and another daughter starting middle school at Lake Hazel Middle School. (Oh and my husband drives me crazy sometimes too!) I also have my adorable Boston Terrier named Spencer and my sweet pug Monty who give me unconditional love. We added a cat to the mix this summer and have a two year old calico named Jinx terrorizing the household. Altogether we are one crazy family, but I wouldn't trade them for anything! Okay maybe for a million dollars!
I believe education is essential for students to be successful in life. It is the tool that helps them become who they want to be. My job is to help lay a strong foundation for them to build on as they move forward in their education and eventually their future careers. I also believe we will have to work hard to achieve this, but can have a lot of fun and laughter along the way. I've always said if I'm not having fun then why did I choose this career. I enjoy my students and expect a lot from them. I look forward to a fun and productive year!
