We are pleased to welcome you to our Fifth Grade Website. We hope this will be your portal to many of the activities and much of the information about what we do in our classrooms this year. If you have any suggestions on how we might improve the site, don’t hesitate to let your child’s teacher know. We are always looking for good ideas.

I am thrilled to be teaching at Springside Elementary. I began my teaching career in 1975 in California. I started teaching in Alpine District in 1984 (I retired in 2009, but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to come back and teach at Springside). I look forward to working with your children this year.
My name is Shari Eliason! I’m from Colorado Springs, Colorado. I’ve lived in Utah for 3 years and have been married for 2 years. I love having fun and going on adventures! I’m excited for this new adventure, teaching at Springside Elementary!
I am excited to be teaching fifth grade at Springside Elementary. We are going to have an exciting year together. I’ve taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th grades. I love teaching and I enjoy hiking, biking, and camping. This is going to be a great year.
