About Mr. Fleming

     My name is Mr. Fleming and this is my fourth year at St. Maria 
Goretti.  
This is my first year as a 6th grade homeroom teacher.  Before this year I 
was in charge of the resource room at SMG.  I also previously taught 6th 
grade in Iowa, so I feel like I am back where I belong.  Middle school is 
my 
favorite age group and it feels great to be back working in a middle 
school 
setting.

     In my spare time I enjoy running, hunting, sports, reading, video 
games, 
and traveling.  I know this will be hard for many of you to hear but I am 
a 
huge Cubs, Bears, Hawkeyes, and Bulls fan.  I root on my Cubbies every 
year 
and every year I am dissapointed (you would think I'd learn!).  I have 
been 
married for four years to my lovely wife Mindy.  We have two daughters, 
Brynn 
and Kinsley.  Mindy and I have been blessed to have two wonderful 
daughters!

Have a fun, spiritual, and hard working year.

     I believe in making my classroom a fun and constructive atmosphere to 
be 
in.  I believe that all students have the ability to be great students, some 
just need to find it.  My mission is to prepare your children for the rest 
of 
middle school and high school, while making middle school fun and engaging!
