5th Grade - Room 18

Mrs. McLaughlin

Mrs. McLaughlin

Welcome to 5th Grade!

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I love being a teacher and I especially enjoy teaching 5th graders. I had a wonderful summer filled with a LOT of memories that I'm looking forward to writing about in Writer's Workshop. The highlight was taking a trip to several of the National parks in the Southwest United States in an emoji camper van! 


I was born and raised in Hawaii and then went to U.C. Berkeley where I studied Chinese Sociology. After a few years of traveling and working, I returned to Hawaii to get an elementary teaching credential and then later, a masters degree in Educational Foundations at the University of Hawaii. I taught grades 4-6 for several years on Oahu before moving to California in 2004 and becoming part of SRVUSD. This will be my 15th year of teaching and I enjoy continuing to learn as the curriculum continues to change.


My family and I live happily in Walnut Creek.
