    Welcome to Mrs. Minch's classroom website!  I am starting my 18th year of teaching fifth grade at Hickory Ridge, by teaching Science & Social Studies.  Mrs. Kirby, Mrs. Pamer, and I have the honor to share our homeroom students with one another.  To give a little background, I earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Education Degree, a Master’s Degree in School Administration & Supervision, and a Principal’s License from the wonderful Baldwin-Wallace University; “Go Yellow Jackets!”



    Creating a consistent line of communication with all involved parties, preparing your child for the Ohio Achievement Assessment for Science, and helping your child reach his or her personal academic goals are a few goals I have set for myself this year.  Your child will be asked to explore, inquire, analyze, question, predict & infer, evaluate, and problem solve in my classroom through various activities in Science and Social Studies. 


    The Ohio & “Common Core” Science and Social Studies Standards are where all class work and home practice derives.  Classroom assessments are also a direct reflection of those learning goals.  Please discuss with your child your common set goals for the year.    


    I welcome you to contact me at Hickory Ridge (330-273-0483) or dminch@bcsoh.org.  I will contact you back at my earliest non-teaching time.  I am excited to have your child in my classes this year.  Thank you for your time and support this year. Together, we will have a great year!
