Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Tessa Fields

Welcome to 5th grade!

I hope you all have enjoyed your Summer vacation! My name is Mrs. Fields. I am very excited to have you in my class this year! I want to tell you a few things about myself and my family. I live outside of Potsdam with my husband and two daughters. My oldest daughter, Alexa, is 20 years old and is starting her junior year at Elmira College. My other daughter, Emma, is 12 and is in 7th grade at Potsdam Central School. My family also has two dogs named Diesel and Maggie!

I like reading books and doing crafts in my free time, but I also enjoy kayaking. If I am not doing these types of activities, I am watching my youngest daughter at her sporting events. 

Enjoy the last few days of your break and I cannot wait to see you on the first day of school! If you or your parents have any questions, feel free to email me at

I hope to see you all at 5th grade orientation on Monday, August 26th from 6-7!

With lots of hope,


Mrs. Fields
