      About Me:
       My name is Mrs. Michelle Gerdes and I will be your child’s 5th grade teacher this year. This is my 16th year teaching in Medina. I graduated from Buffalo State College in 1992.  I team with Mrs. Weber and Mrs. Burroughs.  I teach science to both classes, while Mrs. Weber teaches social studies for each classroom.  In our our classrooms, we enjoy reading exciting novels such as Number the Stars and Eperanza Rising.  Our science is a very hands on program that is exploring the steps of the Engineer Design Process.  We will design and test parachutes in class.  I live with my husband, 2 children, and our golden retriever in Gasport.  I love reading, traveling, and hanging out with my family.
