About Mr. Brooks

I am thrilled to return to the 5th Grade Team in Washington Elementary School!

This will be my fourth year in Summit. My first year was an incredible journey. I met so many amazing colleagues, students and parents. The next year, I had the privilege of filling in for both Mrs. Pilipski and Mrs. Redmond. And last year, I was excited to have the same class for the entire year! Yes, we did not end the school year like we should have, but all those 5th Graders taught me how resilient they can be.

This year, I cannot wait to work with these amazing students, whether at home or in school.

As a previous 5th Grade Teacher in Livingston, NJ, I have had a great experience in working with students who are close to the transition into middle school. My goal is to foster a classroom environment where each student feels safe, comfortable and excited to learn.

My two passions in life are teaching and soccer. I love having the ability to work with young children and not only further their education, but also help them become outstanding young men and women. I also enjoy taking that approach into the game of soccer and coach for a local high school girl's team.

I look forward to an amazing school year!
