Ms. MacAskill's Classroom: About Ms. MacAskill

Welcome to 5th Grade!

My name is Ms. MacAskill and I will be your 5th grade teacher for the 2021-2022 school year!  This will be my second year here at Fisk but my seventh year teaching.  Before coming to Fisk I taught both 2nd and 4th grade in another local district.  I am no stranger to Fisk school though!  I went to Fisk as a student many years ago!  In 4th grade I had Mr. Rose for math and I had Mr. Gatsas as my 5th grade teacher... so we already have a lot in common!  I have always wanted to be a teacher and now I get to live out that dream in the halls that showed me just how fun learning can be!  

This school year will be filled with great adventures!  We will work together to build a trusting and supportive classroom community where we are all able to take risks and to grow in many ways.  We will learn about ourselves as students, advocate for what we need, accept others, and embrace our differences.  Once you are part of the 5MAC family, you are always a part of the 5MAC family. As 5th graders here at Fisk, you will get to participate in so many fun activities where you can proudly show off your ability to be Fantastic Fisk Falcons who model safety, respect, and responsibility everyday.  

I can't wait to grow and learn alongside you this school year!  We are in for a great year of learning, memories, and fun!  

Always remember, "once a falcon, always a falcon!"
