College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:

I graduated with two Bachelor's Degrees from SUNY Cortland, one in Elementary Education 1-6 and one in Spanish.
I went on to get my Master's degree in Special Education (EC).

 

Educational Philosophy/Vision:

I have extremely high expectations for my students! I respect my students and expect the same in return. This will be a great year!

 

What We are Studying:

In ELA this quarter we will be focusing on reviewing

  • making inferences based on evidence.

  • determining universal themes and ideas and applying them to real-world situations.

  • communicating factual information without bias.

  • interpreting language (connotative and figurative).

 We will also be starting an explanatory writing project to finish out the year.

In Social Studies this quarter, we will be studying Ancient Rome. We will be taking a look at how Rome's culture spread throughout history! How exciting!
