Welcome to 5th Grade!

     Welcome to Mr. Chou’s 5th grade class at Highland Elementary in Abington, Pennsylvania.  I hope this website helps increase communication and lets you visualize the wonderful things that your child is learning in school.  I know this year is going to be different and will certainly have many challenges but, together, we will help your child grow and achieve success. An exciting school year is planned and I am eager to get to know your child and help them expand their world and imagination.
This is my 26th year teaching at Highland.  I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1997 majoring in the History of Art and Elementary Education.  I have also completed a Masters of Education at Arcadia University concentrating on Computers and Technology.  In 2011, I was honored to represent teachers in the commonwealth as the Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year.
