Fifth Grade


Gina Knox [email protected]
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year and to 5th grade! I am so excited to be starting a new school year with you. 

My name is Gina Knox. I grew up in Lakewood and graduated from Jeffco schools. Blue Heron has been my home since 2013, though you haven’t always found me in the building. In 2019, I was fortunate to be able to participate in a teacher exchange in Australia. In 2020-21, I taught a 5th grade remote class. Last year, I got to stay home with my sweet baby, Declan. I am so excited to be returning to my classroom where I have the best job in the world. When I am not teaching, you will find me cooking, reading, traveling, or playing at the park with my family. 

I am a lifelong learner. I hold a bachelor’s degree from Metropolitan State University and a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Colorado. I am also endorsed in English as a Second Language (ESL), in the CDE Science of Reading literacy program, and I have been trained in Orton Gillingham. 

It is my goal to help every student find a passion for learning and to celebrate their unique gifts. I am so happy you will be part of our 5th grade family! This is going to be a great year!


Mrs. Gina Knox, M.Ed.
