Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Andrew Chen

Dear Fifth Graders,

Fifth grade is a BIG YEAR.  Your last year at MPE.  The last year before you start Middle School.  All of the students at MPE will be looking to you as the leaders of the school.  And perhaps most disconcerting -- your baby pictures will be in the yearbook... whose idea was that anyway?

A little scary, eh?

Well, not to worry -- we’ll get through it together.  Myself and the rest of the 5th grade team will be with you every step of the way.  I promise we’ll make sure to have some fun along the way too!

For those of you who may not know me yet, my name is Mr. Chen.  I’ve only been a teacher for a short time -- but you may have seen me around MPE, as I’ve been a sub and instructional aide for a few years.  I’ve helped out on a bunch of things around MPE, like the Daily Roar and TREP$.

A little bit about me:  I love playing tennis and chess, and reading science fiction.  Most of all, I enjoy spending time with my family -- I have two wonderful daughters who will be in 8th and 12th grade this fall.

My email is; please contact me with anything you may need. 

Are you ready to rock your last year at MPE?  It’s going to be a blast!


Mr. Chen
