Ms. O'Mara's Class

Welcome to Fifth Grade
Hello! My name is Ms. O'Mara. I have been teaching here in Belleville for 10 years. Of those years, I have spent most of my time in School #3 teaching Kindergarten, 3rd Grade, and I have now been teaching 5th Grade with Mrs. Bevere for the past 6 years. 
I have a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a Supervisor Certification.  I hold an NJ teaching certification for grades K-6 and I also hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology.
Our 5th graders will meet with me for Math everyday!  5th grade is a challenging year, but very rewarding.   I look forward to working hard and laughing harder with our 2022-2023 classes.
Math is the major subject students will be learning with me.  This year we cover a great deal of important topics.  We will dive deeper into place value concepts, as well as algebraic operations. During our school year we cover adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing decimals, as well adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions.  Some additional concepts we see include volume, order of operations, coordinate grids, and metric conversions.
Like I said, it is a challenging year but we love to see our 5th graders leave here with work habits and knowledge that will guide them into their middle school years just around the corner.
