Welcome to FUN and FABULOUS Fifth Grade!!!

Welcome to 5th Grade!  My name is Ms. Fuqua and I am so excited about our year together. This is going to be my third year as a Jefferson Jaguar.  


I graduated from Quincy University with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and received my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Minnesota State University, Mankato . GO MAVERICKS! I love school and cannot wait to pass my passion for learning on to you.


I was born and lived in Tennessee for most of my life, but I have also lived in 5 other states including Florida, Virginia, Arizona, Illinois, and now Minnesota! Most of my family still lives near Nashville, TN. However, my daughter, Leah (19 years old), now lives in Springfield, MO as she pursues her degree in Church Leadership at Evangel University and my son, Luke (17 years old), lives in Quincy, Illinois where he is interning as a worship leader at a local church and attending college. I visit them often and I will have lots of stories to share about my family’s adventures.


When I am not teaching or planning exciting things for our classroom I like to spend time with my boyfriend, Trevor, exploring Minnesota. I love to travel and learn about new cultures. In fact, I have visited the Philippines twice.  I also am an avid coffee drinker and love to read. One of my other favorite things to do is listen to music. I love all kinds of music from classical to pop!


If you ever need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I am available during my prep time from 9:10 to 10:00 each morning to meet or take phone calls. You can also leave a voicemail or email me at any time and I will respond after 3pm each day.

This year in fifth grade we will do lots of learning, but we will also have lots of fun! Our classroom will be filled with friendship, kindness, and lots of laughter as we learn and grow together. I am looking forward to learning more about you as we embark on this exciting journey together.  I cannot wait to work with my awesome group of fifth grade leaders.
