Mrs. D'Apuzzo's 6th Grade Math and Science Website  

Background
Welcome to my website!  I hope you find it useful and easy to navigate.  I would like to begin by saying that my name is Joy D'Apuzzo, and I have been a teacher for sixteen years, and I truly LOVE what I do.

I grew up in San Jose and attended San Jose State University where I earned my teaching credential.  Currently, I live in San Jose with my husband, Andrew, my six year old son, Lucas, and my three year old girl, Aliya.  They both keep  my husband and I on our toes.  I love traveling and being with my family.   

My goal for this year is to assist your children in their social and academic growth.  Starting middle school can be a challenge for many students; therefore, I will do my best to help your children become organized, responsible, and confident.  Also, I will keep Power School updated weekly, so please be sure to check on your child's progress to make sure no assignments are missing.  If there are ever any situations and/or problems, always feel free to send me an email at dapuzzoj@unionsd.org.  Email is the best way to contact me.  

With your help and support, I know that we will have a successful year! 


Now that you know a little bit about me, please take a minute to introduce your child by taking this quick parent survey.
