Welcome to Mrs. Mitek's 5th Grade!
Welcome to fifth grade with Mrs. Mitek!
Welcome! My name is Alison Mitek and this is my fourth year at St. Thomas More. As a military child and spouse, I have had the opportunity to live in quite a few places across our great country so transition is an old hat to me. I moved to Virginia in 2007 and have been in Arlington for 16 years. I received my first bachelor degree in Communications, Advertising and Public Relations and my second in Sport and Fitness Management. In 2007 I received my Masters Degree in Sport Management.
After working for a number of years I decided to stay home with my daughter and focus on family. It was then I realized a love of working with children. I began subbing in the Arlington Public School System and teaching Catechism at Our Lady of Lourdes in Arlington. I was blessed to have the opportunity to work at St. Thomas More as a Kindergarten aide. As luck would have it I was able to step in as the full time substitute for our wonderful 5th grade teacher when she needed to take a leave of absence, and the rest is history!
It has truly been a blessing these last few years, teaching second grade and sharing in the joy of watching them make their First Holy Communion. But it is time for a change and I am thrilled to be moving back to 5th grade this year. I am looking forward to helping your children grow academically, spiritually and mentally in this transitional year before middle school. My goal is to make school an exciting and fulfilling adventure that your child looks forward to each and every day.
