• Welcome to 5th grade! 

    My name is Samantha Sims! I graduated from UTSA, GO ROADRUNNERS!!! This is my second year at Armstrong in 5th grade! I'm married, I love corney jokes, science, intresting facts, cats, and arts and crafts! 

    In science with our 5th graders I plan to have intresting investigations and experiments at least once a week! Having worksheets for my students is something I rarley want them to be doing! Be expecting vocabulary quizzes almost every Friday! Lets make sure and knock this science STAAR out of the park.
