Degrees and Certifications:
I hope everyone had a wonderful summer. Let’s start off with a brief introduction about my background. I am from the Western New York area (Buffalo). I received my Bachelor’s degree from SUNY Brockport and my Master’s degree from Niagara University. I have taught a total of thirteen years, eleven of those years were at Boone Trail. I have interests in physical activity, reading, sports, and mathematics. I feel that is a more than an adequate description of myself. I look forward to meeting your children and learning more about them.
This school year will have an emphasis on math, reading and science. Our grade level has an EOG in all three of these subjects. My greatest encouragement to pass on to you is to make certain your child reads every night. Literacy is the pathway to all academic success. I will keep our homework short and relevant. It is important that children have ample time to spend with family.
As a class we will develop rules together. However, respect for classmates and adults will always be imperative. As far as supplies, I appreciate following the list. However, many are facing tumultuous economic times. Just try to make sure your child has something to write with and something to write on. Please remember to call me if you have any problems. Thank you for sending your child to my classroom.
