This year I will be teaching the following:

-2 sections of 8th grade ELA. We are lucky to have a section co-taught with Mrs. Quartarano our Special Education teacher. (Materials=your charged ipad and earbuds, pens and pencils, a folder and notebook or binder with paper, and your planner). We will continue to use the NYS Common Core ELA modules to meet standards and goals. Your child should bring the module books to class daily along with his/her IR (independent reading) book once he/she selects one. One will be slected per marking period. We will use the EPIC app and other online platforms to select IR books on the ipad. 

CORE ELA grade 8. (Materials=your charged ipad and earbuds, pens/pencils.The portfolios will stay in the room when we return to the building). We will be working on reading comprehension skills utilizing EPIC (similar to the grade 8 game plan).

DCC ELA 101 and 102. (Materials-your charged ipad and earbuds, pens, and your planner. A folder/notebook OR a binder with paper is also needed. Your DCC writing folder will stay in the room when we return to school).

EI lab (Materials=your charged ipad and earbuds as well as a pen/pencil and notebook. I will provide you with a folder that will stay in the room).

(In school when we return)=My classroom is room 3 in the high school. Please feel free to see me for any questions or concerns. I will be available both before and after school by appointment. Please utilize my website for the nightly homework, test and quiz information, and important information for your class. Parents and guardians, please email me or call me for any questions or concerns. My extension for the new classroom phone is 6022 (subject to change since my room changed last year). Remind will be used as well as google classroom! Please utilize those platforms to communicate and gain information.

I'm excited about the various new changes and updates here at Webutuck! The new IPAD initiative that started a few years ago will continue this year. Most classes will utilize these devices daily (when we return to school) to enhance reading and comprehension skills (utilizing iready in the classroom, but utilizing the EPIC app during virtual online teaching).

On a personal note, I live in Pleasant Valley with guinea pig Honey! My hobbies include cooking, baking, reading, and swimming.

 

With enthusiasm! Here’s to a great year,

Miss Garofalo
