Welcome to 5th grade at Briggs Elementary! My name is Mrs. McAlister, and I currently teach ELA and social studies. I am highly qualified and have a B.S. and Master’s Degree in Elementary Education.
Social Studies is one of my passions! I have enjoyed teaching history over the years and have learned so much myself! I love connecting reading to social studies with a variety of resources. My motto is pretty much my philosophy in teaching. I basically believe, “You have to understand the past to understand the present and the future." My goal for all students is to help them develop a love for reading and understanding of how important the past really is.
I hope this website will assist you in helping your child be the best student they can!
