Miss Parma

5th Grade

Welcome to 5P!

Hi friends! My name is Ms. Alyssa Parma and this is my first year here at Westchester Intermediate! I am so excited to get to know each and every one of my students and their wonderful families! This 2018-19 school year will be my first official year of teaching as well! I graduated from Illinois State University in December 2017 with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and endorsements in Social Sciences and Language Arts. I am currently back in school to add a third endorsement, English As a Second Language (ESL). I cannot wait to learn and grow with each of you!

I love listening to music and I always try to play music in the classroom! I am a Target and Dunkin Donuts girl at heart, you can always find me there on a weekend! I have a puppy named Cooper and I currently live at home with my family in Geneva where I attended school K-12!

In my classroom, students will respect myself, their classmates and themselves! I love to incorporate movement into all of my lessons, so you wont find these 5P kiddos sitting in their desks for long! I will do my best to post homework for the week under the "Homework Calendar" tab. Posted under the "Expectations" tab are OUR classes rules and expectations to facilitate a warm and inviting learning environment! We have a new math curriculum as well, named "Bridges"! A link to a site that better explains the outline is under the " New Curriculum" tab!

Please do not hesitate to contact me! That information is under the "Contact" tab!

Let's have an amazing school year!!

Ms. Parma (:
