Mrs. Chatman-Dunbar

Welcome to sixth grade. Please feel free to contact me anytime during the school year via email: or phone 228-432-3700

I am so excited about being your child's fifth grade science teacher. This is my first year teaching sixth grade, and eighteenth year teaching altogether. I have taught grades third through fifth (math, social studies, and science). . I hope you will promise to take the time and effort to work with me as a team. A good support team ensures a productive and successful school year for everyone involved.

Homework is an important part of this curriculum(studying nightly unless there becomes a need). It is my way of knowing if your kid(s) need extra help on a standard being taught. If they bring me an empty sheet back, I have nothing to go on, and it hinders my ability to help them succeed. Homework should not take more than 15-20 minutes if students come into class work daily from start to finish. If you find that he or she is spending hours doing homework, then it is usually due to them not completing the required work in class and now it has become homework time 2. I don't always give homework, but PLEASE encourage students to review and

study nightly. Reading nonfiction books on the topics that we are discussing in class, it truly helps with testing in Science.

I have a BS in Elementary Education, AA in Human Service, and a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. I am honored to be named the recipient of the Beverly Briscoe Award and Teacher of the Year for the Biloxi Public Schools. I am a mother (4 girls, 1 boy) and a proud Glamma of 4 (2 girls, 2 boys).

It is such a privilege to be a part of your child's learning experience. I will push your children beyond what they feel they can do by setting high expectations.

The reward of setting high expectations is being able to congratulate them when they work beyond my expectations, but more so their own expectations.
