Welcome to 5th grade English! This is my fourth year in Whitehouse and my thirteenth year to teach. I am very passionate about teaching English and Writing. I am looking forward to a new year and taking on our learning journey.
I have a fourteen-year-old daughter who also attends school in Whitehouse. I am a fashion guru, runner, and I enjoy shopping! During any free time, our family enjoys spending time on the lake, camping, NASCAR, and watching Baylor Bear football! Sic' Em Bears!

NO SPELLING TEST AFTER FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2017

Dear Family,


The district has made the decision to no longer give actual spelling tests. Therefore, this Friday will be your child’s last spelling test. However, the state of Texas has mandated Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) that your child is to learn in each subject grade level. We will still work with certain spelling skills each week and continue our spelling homework on Mondays. A grade will still be taken on spelling homework as well. I will implement other activities to further promote the learning of these particular spelling patterns and skills. I appreciate the time you have spent with your child on spelling this nine weeks. Thank you for all that you do to help with the success of your child.


Respectfully Yours,


Ms. Dotson
