Ms. Aitken  
Welcome! From teaching gifted primary students in Bali to leading an early years department for an international school in Uganda to attending the University of Sydney for a year,  I am thankful for a decade of opportunities around the world to grow an educator. I love being on the SIES 5th Grade team! My hobbies include investigating developmental affective neuroscience and pedagogy; spending time with family and friends; and curriculum development. I believe the fundamental purpose of education is to understand relationships through patterns, cycles, and connections. In fifth grade, we focus on both community and personalized learning, cultivating passion for life-long learning.
