Dear Families,

Hello and welcome to Fifth Grade! My name is Ms. Decibus, and I am extremely excited to be a part of your child’s final year of elementary school! A little bit about me:  I attended Columbus School in my 5th-grade year when they turned my elementary school into what is now the Carteret Middle School. I am a graduate of Carteret High School where I was a three-sport athlete and now I coach the high school girl's softball team. I love to travel and I attend at least one San Francisco 49er game a year! 

 I am also extremely honored to work side by side as the Special Education teacher with my two amazing co-teachers, Mrs. Rodriguez (ELA) and Mrs. Stryker (Math, Science, SS).

This is my third year teaching at Columbus School, and the eighth year teaching overall. Columbus School has an amazing faculty and staff that has welcomed me from the very beginning as well as every unique student I have had the pleasure of being around. There is nothing I would rather do, and I can't wait to get started!  

Please refer to the information brochure attached on my page to learn more about the different programs and curriculum we use in the fifth grade!

If we can assist you in any way to make this the best year for your child, please feel free to contact us, either through email or a note sent to school. We will be sure to reply back at our earliest convenience.

Here's to a great school year!

Ms. Decibus
