Welcome to 5th grade! My name is Ali Lake. This will be my first year at Thompson Intermediate teaching 5th grade, but I am entering my fourth year in the classroom. I taught for a year in Atlanta, Georgia. I then returned to Birmingham, Alabama where I taught 6th grade ELA for two years.
This year I am team teaching with Mrs.Cooper(Math) and Mrs. Byrd(Science/Social Studies). I teach reading to all three homerooms. I also teach grammar and writing to my own homeroom.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of Montevallo.
I love to spend time at the local library, hike at Red Mountain Park, and go to the farmers market. I love to travel. My hope is to bring the outside world into my classroom. I'm very excited about the 2017-2018 school year!
