Welcome to 3rd Grade Reader's Workshop
This is my seventh year teaching at Theodore Roosevelt and I consider myself very fortunate to be apart of such a wonderful district.
I would like to take the opportunity to give you some information about myself. I am originally from Warren, New Jersey and I now live right here in Weehawken. A lot of my family is from Weehawken and I love sharing their roots here. I graduated from Hofstra University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education as well as Speech Communication. I also received my Masters in Reading and a Reading Specialist Certificate from Montclair State University. In addition, I have my Kids Yoga certificate and enjoy incorporating social and emotional learning through our curriculum.
I understand that teaching your child is a privilege and a very big responsibility. I will provide each child the tools they need to have a successful year. I believe that we need to be partners in this learning process. Email is the best way to reach me, to ensure consistent and open communication between school and home. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students will be expected to read for at least 20 minutes every night for homework!

OurBoox: For a student that loves to write, setting up an account on Ourboox will allow your child to create their own ebooks with illustrations, too!
Brains On: This is a great website to work on listening skills. When students are on the go, have a long car ride ahead, or just have 20-30 minute of free time, streaming a podcast can keep them entertained while teaching them something new! Brains On has a site and can also be found on the Podcast App.
Kids National Geographic: Students can research nonfiction topics and images online.
Time For Kids: Students can read about current events online.
Wonderopolis: Has your child ever wondered what a botanist does, where the Tigris River is, or how to toss pizza dough? On Wonderopolis, students can search the many wonders of the world and find answers to the random questions that may be running through their heads!
