Hello! I am Mrs. Layton. I have a Bachelor's of Arts degree from Knox college, a small liberal arts college in Illinois. This is my 26th year in the classroom. I taught for 13 years in Texas and 13 years at Sinclair. I love coming to work every school to teach the best fourth and fifth grade students in the world. I also work with some of the greatest educators there are.
My husband and I have three children. Our oldest resides in Hawaii with his wife. Our oldest daughter lives in El Paso, Texas with her husband and two children. Our youngest daughter attends Virginia Tech and lives with her little dog, Moose.
On weekends, my husband and I enjoy walking and running with our dogs. I share the love for running by coaching the Girls on the Run team at Sinclair. Girls on the Run has a fall and a spring season. In all total, I have coached 14 seasons this coming spring.
We are working on fractions, decimals, and percentages in math. Please check over your child's homework to see how he or she is progressing.
