Ms. Truncali's Redhawks

2nd Grade Self-Contained (GT)

Welcome to our classroom! My name is Mary Ellen Truncali (I go by Mary Ellen) and this will be my 35th year in education. This year I will be teaching all subjects in a self-contained classroom. I am GT and ESL certified. I still get excited about working with children every single day. I have taught the last 12 years in CFISD and am honored to have this opportunity to work with your child this year.

I am the mother of two grown sons; Vincent, who is the father of my delightful sixth grade granddaughter named Alli. Anthony, my youngest, was recently married to a beautiful and sweet soul named Mariah. They are the parents of two wonderful fur grandbabies, Lulu and Breezy. I am the proud owner of one of the sweetest orange tabby cats called Zulu. My hobbies include gardening, reading, geocaching, and just about anything outdoors.

I am so excited to have your child in my class this year. We will be working on developing a "growth mindset" in all we do. I am excited to help you understand how this mindset will help your child's brain grow and develop.

I know we are going to have wonderful year and learn a great deal. I am very passionate about my life's work. I want us to work together as a team so that your child can become all he/she is meant to be! Our time together is short so we maximize every minute of the day to grow children into independent thinkers and lifelong learners. Your help is essential to our success.

Please feel free to contact me about anything concerning your sweet know them best! I welcome you and look forward to a fabulous year!

Mary Ellen
