Meet The Teacher

Hello everyone and welcome to third grade! My name is Itzitl Pacheco and I am one of the third grade special education teachers at TRS. This is my fifth year at TRS and I know that it will be a phenomenal year. I am very excited to meet you all. I want to begin by saying that I love what I do and I couldn't imagine myself in any other field that isn't teaching.

I received my dual BA from New Jersey City University in Early Childhood Education/Special Education and Modern Languages, with a focus in Spanish. I am certified to teach Special Ed K-12, General grades K-3, and Spanish K-12. I also recently received my Master of Science in Instruction and Curriculum from Western Governors University. Besides being a teacher, I am also a behavior therapist and I work alongside children with autism. With that being said, I too continue to be a student, since I am always learning and setting new educational goals for myself. I believe in the importance of workshops and professional developments in order to keep up with all educational changes and technological advancements that will enable me to provide my students with the best learning experience possible.

This year, I will be co-teaching with Mrs. Danchise and we will be teaching all general subjects. I will aim to create a sense of community in our classroom. This year I hope to inspire my students and continue to fuel their love for learning. Can't wait to meet you all!
