• WELCOME TO 2018-2019 FIFTH GRADE SCHOOL YEAR!   
     
    Hello Fifth Grader and families,
     
       My name is Ms. Bannen, and I will be your fifth grade teacher this year at HTA.  This will be my third year teaching fifth grade and I am so excited that you will be in my class.  I know you are going to love fifth grade and all the exciting things you will be learning. 
     
       I was born and raised in Mesa.  I received my B.A. in education from University of Phoenix and my Masters from Grand Canyon University.  I have been teaching for three years and have enjoyed every minute of it.  I have five children and two grandchildren who keep me very busy, however, when I do get some quiet time I enjoy scrapbooking and reading.
     
       Parents, I may be contacted through email, karen.bannen@husd.org, or by a phone call at 480.279.6864.  My school hours are from 7:35 to 3:35.  I am looking forward to getting to know your student and working with him or her on a daily basis.  Please feel free to contact me at any time.  It is a privilege for me to be working with you this year.  Your support and reinforcement of classroom policies and procedures will help ensure a successful year in fifth grade.
     
       This is going to be a fun and exciting school year for all!  I can't wait to get started!!
     
    Ms. Bannen
