Mr. Layton

Hello 5th Grade Families!

My name is Mr. Layton and I am ready to run it back with our amazing group of 5th graders! Here's a little bit about me:

- I have been teaching at Converse Elementary since the beginning of the 2020 school year.

- I will be your child's Reading, Writing, and Social Studies teacher.

- Before I taught at Converse, I taught 4th grade in New Orleans for 2 years and was a para in Colorado.

- Outside of school, sports are MY LIFE! Basketball is my favorite, with the Indiana Pacers being my favorite team and Giannis Antetokounmpo being my favorite player. Cover your ears when I sing, because I love listening to all kinds of music. I also enjoy hanging out watching anime with my wife and running a part time zoo (not really) with our 5 animals!

I look forward to keeping in close contact with each of you regarding your child's academic and social progress. If you would like to help volunteer in the classroom at any point this year, please reach out to me via DOJO or email. My classroom will always be open to you if you'd like to visit. Together, let's develop your child's character and their passion for learning.

-Love Mr. Layton
